What sound device(s) does Dickinson employ in the phrase, "too cool for Corn-" as well as the line, "But when a Boy,/and Barefoot"? Choose all that apply.

1.) onomatopeia
2.) alliteration
3.) assonance
4.) slant rhyme

I know that alliteration and slant rhyme are used.

Couldn't it even be assonance? Corn and transport kind of rhyme.

  1. Yes, assonance is also used -- too cool.

  2. Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds, and may or may not rhyme. Look at the other lines around this and decide if you want to include assonance.

    Here's an excellent example of assonance -- TWO matching vowel sounds in the three words:

    Jumpy monkey sundae

    (the name of a dessert at a restaurant I went to a few times!)

  3. Onomatopoeia WOULDN'T be one... right? Because there are no sound effects.
