Alliterative Title

Go To

"Now where's that book? I think it was... 'Super Spectacular Stupendous Spontaneous Summoning Scripture Signals and You'..."

Any and all appellations alluding to letters that are akin to one another.

Or put simply: An Alliterative Title is when all the words in a work's title begin with the same phonetic sound. This can be done for varying reasons or effects, but more often than not, it's a catchy, easy way to remember the name of a work.

Often coincides with Added Alliterative Appeal and Alliterative Name or even Author Appeal. Notice a trend?
