The correct answer to this question is True. Alliteration is common in poetry, as well as in writing like magazines advertisements, tongue-twisters, and headlines. It is easy to spot alliteration because, throughout the sentence, the first consonant is repeated.
An example is a popular sentence learned in nursery school, which says, "Sally sells sea-shells by the sea-shore." The constant consonant in the sentence is the letter S. Alliteration doesn't just have to be a sentence. It can also be a name. Examples of names with alliteration include John Jones, Gary Graham, and Heather Hunter. In all of these names, the first and last names start with the same consonant.
My english class is going to take a poetry test soon. I looked up the word "alliteration". And here is the definition I got ''Alliteration is when you use words that have the same sound at the beginning, like Stellar students synthesize sweet sentences.'' I disagree with this answer, because it also could be consonance. Consonance- Repetion of consonant sounds.
