I should have one of these out every other week so be on the lookout for that. Any quality improvement ideas would be great. Oh and don't forget to subscribe! How to Rap - Assonance, Consonance and Alliteration This week I'm gonna be talking about assonance, consonance and alliteration. You can use these techniques to give your pieces a more subtle, poetic sound. Alliteration is the most common, and what you'll be able to easily pick out of verses. Assonance and Consonance (vowels or consonants) Assonance: Repeated Vowel sounds Basically that's all it is, the same vowel sound repeated throughout different words in the line or bar. The letters don't have to be the same, the important part is the sound. Here's some examples so it'll make a little more sense Examples: tw[i]l[i]ght meets tw[i]ce at n[i]ght A Pr[ou]d r[ou]nd cl[ou]d with a m[ou]nd of cl[ou]t D[o] y[ou] like bl[ue] (same sounds, different letters) Consonance: Repeated consonant sounds Examples: No[rm], the wo[rm] was taken by sto[rm] Sla[m] the dru[m] into so[m]e [m]a[mm]al I ba[tt]le bri[tt]le wri[tt]ens in li[tt]le se[t]s Alliteration: First Syllable Repeating [B]ig [b]abies [b]ow to [b]othered [b]rothers [R]ed [r]angers [r]ope off the lower [r]ecepticle Sometimes the same letters can be pronounced in different ways, the important part is that the pronunciation sound is the same, not the spelling. As always, don't let these tools overshadow the meaning of your pieces. Next week either rhyme schemes or wordplay.
