Assonant Rhyme Definition
What is a Assonant rhyme? Rhyming of similar vowels but different consonants.
Assonance, or assonant rhymes are usually found more often in a verse, phrase, or sentence. Assonance, is used in (mainly modern) English-language poetry. According to most scholars, it is particularly important in Old French, Spanish and the Celtic languages.
Examples of Assonant Rhymes:
As Wikipedia explains, an assonant rhyme is the repetition of vowel sounds. This repetition creates internal rhymes in phrases or sentences.
For example, in the phrase "the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain", the /cer/ur/ur ("er"/"ur"/ sound) is repeated within the sentence, found in the words uncertain, purple and in curtain. This is an assonant rhyme internally in a sentence.
