Marcie’s Discovery: Stylistic Devises

7 Jun

While writing a story to post on, I wanted to know the term for consective words that begin the same letters.  These are alliterations.  As I conducted more research, I found a listing of stylistic devises including litolites and onomatopoeia.  Do you know what those are?  Stylistic devises add life to stories, essays and speeches.  Litolites ” uses the denied opposite of a word to weaken or soften a message” and onomatopoeia is when “the pronounciation of the word imitates a sound.”  These are terms that we probably use in everyday conversation.  We just don’t know the correct names for these terms.  Enlightenment is a beautiful thing!
