Alliteration: Phonemic Development, Listen for Sounds!

What is Alliteration?

General alliteration is the repetition of the same letter or sound, at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words.  For example:
"Peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers."

Alliteration is a craft, which offers many effects.  It can draw the reader's attention to the text.  It often adds to the rhythm of the story.  It can also create a mood, depending on the connotation of the particular sound being emphasized.
