Please note, other sound repetition techniques include alliteration and assonance.
For example: “the pitter patter of little feet.”
Consonance is a phonetic agreement device characterised by the repetition of the same consonant two or more times in short succession. Consonance can involve assonance, and alliteration forms a specific kind of consonance. Consonance is not necessarily persuasive within itself, but can alter the way a person reads the sentence. For more information on how this technique can be persuasive, see alliteration.
