C. There are five vowel sounds in the English language, namely: A, E, I, O, U. When one of these vowel sounds is repeated by using different words, that is assonance. Therefore, Assonance is simply the repetition of same vowel sound within different words in a phrase, sentence, paragraph, or in a line of poetry.

Example of Assonance The student entered their puberty stage during their university days. The different bolded words in the above example have the same vowels sounds repeated. But, Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning or neighboring words or words closely put together.

The consonant sounds in English language are 21, which are [b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y, z]. Some of the Examples of alliteration Banks bails Bright’s brother before buying bread.   NOTE: In alliteration, the sounds must be consonant, then this consonant must be of the same kind at the beginning each word.

Just like it appeared in the example above. Alliteration and assonance are of different sounds because in” Assonance”, repetition of sounds is within different words while in alliteration, repetition of same sounds begins different words.
