Sarah Palliteration:

From her book:
It took years for Alaska to achieve victory. As governor, I directed our attorney general to write an amicus brief in the case, and, thanks to Alaska's able attorneys arguing in front of the highest court in the land, in 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the people.
More please.

UPDATE: According to Wikipedia, alliteration is a literary or rhetorical stylistic device that consists in repeating the same consonant sound at the beginning of several words in close succession.

So, if it involves the letter "a", which is not a consonant, is it not alliteration?

Could it be assonance? (Assonance is refrain of vowel sounds to create internal rhyming within phrases or sentences.)


It wouldn't count as alliteration anyway since the "A" sounds are different. If all the words start with "C" but actually alternate between S and K sounds wouldn't be alliteration.
