I hated that song..
A-E-I-O-U, U... and sometimes Y
I think he's talking about 'reverse alliteration' (I'm thinking there must be a name for it?), where instead of the first letters all sounding the same, the last letters do.
So... instead of Silly Cindy Sat on Cement as it Set, it would be...
Hicks sticks a hex on Dix for having sex.
in this case i wasn't really intending to mean a whole syllable rhyme, i was just separating the sounds out and comparing the last part of speech that is used with both words
comparing the x sound in sex to the ks or cks sound in kicks.
So you pronounce wrecks and rex differently?
Maybe it's just our American marble-mouths.
i thought alliteration didn't have much to do with phonetics and was purely based on the word beginning with the same letter?
or are there different kinds of alliteration
oh and you hit the nail on the head
Same sound, not letter... as I demonstrated.
Also, I'm not sure that it has to be at the beginning... Maybe there's a different name when it's at the end? I don't know.
well the s slur on wrecks lasts longer, rex is sharper and clearer...
short and sharp followed by exaggerated slurr to emphasise the plural.
sound completely different, if i said them to you, you would be able to tell the difference without referring to the context of their use.
That darn Puritanical Hicks.
I was thought in english that a saying like
All American Angels
perhaps in literature it's just as eye catching as it is relatively ear catching in speech
How is this my fault?
That is an alliteration, but it's based on sound, not letter.
Catch Cindy Cooking.... I don't think is alliterative, although I could be wrong.
According to this site, it doesn't even have to be at the beginning (which is what I was thinking).
For instance this: Now Beowulf bode in the burg of the Scyldings, Leader beloved, and long he ruled In fame with all folk since his father had gone - is alliteration.
They talk about how ancient poets frequently used alliteration instead of rhyme: "In Beowulf there are three alliterations in every line".
This too they say is alliteration:
Mary sat musing on the lamp-flame at the table
Waiting for Warren. When she heard his step.
I think that it's only in your mind that they sound different to you.
I know you wouldn't be able to tell if I said them not in context, and I do ennunciate quite well (for an American ).
Ye, but you haven't heard the hex Hicks set on Rex!
I heard Hicks called Dex to get specs on a hex for Rex's pecs which could really vex Tex.
I vote "no" on acceptance of Y as a vowel, and "yes" on the annexation of * to make the twenty-seventh letter of our alphabet. I notice it's used a lot, especially on here.
Did you hear about the hex Hicks hit Harry with, too?
Try saing 'hex hicks hit Harry' several times quickly.
to hell with the lotta ya
that site's crazy
boooooring... thanks a lot, Daisy for trying to make us learn. you too, Outsiderzedge
I'm sorry. It's just my nature.
I don't have all the details, but I'm putting stuff together.
I refuse to learn
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Y was never a vowel. Never will be one.
