Could only and other be an alliteration?

  • L.A -

    Yes, if they are put word by word like the example below

    There could be only one other way to figure out the puzzle.

    A coomon known alliteration is Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers.

    Do you see a pattern?

  • L.A -

    No, they don't have the same sound. And alliteration is usually the repetition of consonants, not vowels.

    "rifles' rapid rattle" (from a poem by Wilfred Owen, for example)

    (In "only" the "o" is a long vowel. In "other" the "o" is a short vowel.)
