It's currently defined in two ways, when alliteration occurs as a quirky CharacterTic (which may or may not mean there's something ''off'' about them), or when a short phrase or sentence is mainly alliterative, beyond an isolated common phrase like "knobby knees".



Often, although not universally, a characteristic of the TongueTwister.

It may be also be part of AuthorAppeal, RuleOfFunny, or RuleOfCool.

It is currently defined in two ways, when alliteration occurs repeatedly, in a character's speech, or when a sentence is mainly alliterative, beyond a short noun phrase like "knobby knees".

Frequent use could be called PurpleProse.

If a character frequently engages in it, they're typed as quirky, and it makes them stand out, and could be a sign that there's something off, about a character.

This is a sister trope of RhymesOnADime.

[[folder:Audio Play]]
* ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'': ''[[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho103TheGirlWhoNeverWas The Girl Who Never Was]]'':
--> '''Byron''': And I won't have some '''p'''onstop '''p'''irate '''p'''it me to the '''p'''ost.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'':
** V introduces himself in a speech that is rife with words starting with the letter "V".
** After [[spoiler:Finch]] takes acid he comes up with:
---> '''V: V'''aulting, '''v'''eering, '''v'''omiting up the '''v'''alues that '''v'''ictimized me, feeling '''v'''ast, feeling '''v'''irginal... was this how he felt? This '''v'''erve, this '''v'''itality... this '''v'''ision... La '''v'''oie... la '''v'''verite... la '''v'''ie.''
* During the Silver Age of Creator/MarvelComics, Doctor Strange would spout alliteratives, usually in place of expletives, or as his personal version of "verily, I say unto thee." One of Doc Strange's favorites is "by the hoary hosts of Horgoth!", though he has many others as the Master of Mysticism. Creator/StanLee worships alliteration, to the point where the ComicBook/FantasticFour's arch-nemesis Characters/DoctorDoom was almost scrapped because Lee couldn't think of a suitable alliterative for Doom; he'd pondered Donald Doom in desperation before hitting upon ''Doctor'' Doom.
* ''[[ComicBook/DisneyKingdoms Figment]]'' has the Sound Sprites, who create objects from sound. Because of this, they prize aural perfection and speak entirely in alliteration to reflect this. Anything and anyone that doesn't communicate in this manner is considered imperfect / cacophonic, a source of bad audio, and must be imprisoned.
* ''ComicBook/{{Robin|Series}}'': Tim and some classmates discuss an assignment on Shakespeare's use of alliteration and when several of them says they don't understand what alliteration is Tim eventually responds with, ''"Stupid students stagnantly steeped in stupor"'' which gets it to click for one of them who responds with the tongue twister ''"Sally sells seashells."''
* ''ComicBook/GarfieldHis9Lives'': "Bought the farm for failing to field a fetched frap tree."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/DykesToWatchOutFor'': Bechdel sometimes indulges in this, take these three examples using the letter "P":
** The [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness narrative caption]] "Mo's '''p'''ulchritudinous '''p'''al '''p'''erforms her '''p'''uerile '''p'''oetry"
** The title of one of Sydney's papers, "'''P'''olysemous '''P'''erversity: '''P'''aradigms of '''P'''leasure in the '''P'''ornographic '''P'''urview",

---> Pinkie's mouth opened up impossibly wide and she swallowed the entire ice sculpture in a single gulp. "Mmm! Chilly." The pony let out another excited squeal.

Doesn't that just sound delicious?"

The reassembly process is supposed to be easy to remember as each part is labelled with a letter. Unfortunately, Homer (being TheDitz) forgets what comes after B.
-->'''Lisa:''' Uh, Dad? The next letter is...
-->'''Homer:''' Not now, Lisa. I can't concentrate on correctly combining these components into creating a cool cold weather contraption.

As an easy example, "'''F'''atal '''F'''amily '''Ph'''oto" is obviously indicative of Added Alliterative Appeal ("ph" = "f"), whereas "'''C'''ombat by '''Ch'''ampion" is ...not as much ("c" and "ch" have decidedly different dictations). However, a phrase, name, nickname, or title that is alliterative only in spelling can still be considered an alliteration. One must regard regional pronunciations with proper precaution; "'''Tr'''ial by '''Ch'''ampion" allows alliteration in occasional accents ("'''Ch'''rial"), but decidedly ''not'' in others, and not in [=RP/Standard=].


* '''Alliteration applies to a particular piece's ''[[red:pronunciation]]'' more than its specific ''[[red:spelling]]''.''' As an easy example, "'''F'''atal '''F'''amily '''Ph'''oto" is obviously indicative of Added Alliterative Appeal ("ph" = "f"), whereas "'''C'''ombat by '''Ch'''ampion" is ...not so much ("c" and "ch" have decidedly different dictations). One must regard regional pronunciations with proper precaution; "'''Tr'''ial by '''Ch'''ampion" allows alliteration in occasional accents ("'''Ch'''rial"), but decidedly ''not'' in others, and not in [=RP/Standard=].
