Consonance is typically used to refer to the repetition of ending sounds that are consonants, but it can refer to repetition of consonant sounds within the word as well. Often, consonance is used to create a rhyme or cadence.
Consonance differs from alliteration and assonance. Alliteration, remember, is the repetition of a sound at the beginning of a word. Assonance is the repetition of a vowel sound.
Consonance is the repetition of a consonant sound and is typically used to refer to the repetition of sounds at the end of the word, but also refers to repeated sounds in the middle of a word.
