Just Jonathan: Always allow alliterations

Jonathan Meyer

For as long as I can remember, my favorite part of speech has been the always acceptable alliteration. The dictionary defines an alliteration as “the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words.”

As a local newsman, I love thinking of creative ways to combine, cluster, and create, ever engaging headlines that overview compelling content crammed into continuous articles inside every piece of news that you consume from this local paper,

“For as long as I can remember,” I uttered this amazingly accurate sentence, harkening back to learning these different parts of speech. Writing was only words at that time, not ideas being presented. These new enhancements introduced me to a new tool to touch and try while crafting an ever entertaining yet informative piece of writing.

I think how my awe at alliterations shapes the style and voice of my articles while providing me a fun challenge, constantly digging deep into my ever expanding vocabulary to find the perfect match to form my favorite, the alliteration. Writing is not just words on paper, but ideas and personality encapsulated inside of information being presented. This has been my ode to the alliteration.
