Alliteration is the repition of a sound more than twice that ar together or close by. Tongue twisters are good examples of alliteration. “Dewdrops dancing on daisies” and “How can a clam cram in a clean cream can?” are examples of twisty alliterations. Mick Terry uses alliteration in his song “Better Be a Better Boy.” Even the title uses alliteration. He has two examples of alliteration in his song. The first is “Better be a better boy before you bother betting that you’ll bring her back home again.” The repeating b sound makes this phrase alliteration. The last example in his song of alliteration is “‘Cause you caused her so much misery that she ached.” The repeat c sound makes this alliteration.
