    1. repeat initial consonant sound = alliteration

    Alliteration and consonance are both figures of speech in which the author chooses to repeat consonants within neighboring words, but the difference is that in alliteration, the initial consonant is repeated, whereas in consonance, the final consonant is repeated.

    2. like - night = slant rhyme

    Slant rhyme is a type of imperfect rhyme. It means that similar sounds are used instead of the same sounds in two or more words which are supposed to rhyme, like in the case of like and night. You can see that they do sound similarly, but not the same.

    3. repeat final consonant sound = consonance

    Read the explanation I wrote for 1.

    4. sound effects = onomatopoeia

    Onomatopoeia is a figure of speech used to imitate sounds you can hear in nature or anywhere around you. So, for example, if you say the words jingle, mew, baa, buzz, boom, etc, you are imitating sounds that can be heard, and that is onomatopoeia.

    5. repeat vowel sounds = assonance

    As opposed to alliteration and consonance, where consonants are repeated in neighboring words, assonance is a figure of speech authors use when they want to repeat the same vowel in neighboring words. For example, in words lie:side:bride, the same vowel (i) is repeated.

    6. ball - fall = true rhyme

    Unlike slanted rhyme, where similar sounds are used, when it comes to true rhyme, sounds which sound the same are used. As you can see, in words ball and fall, only one sound differs, and that is the initial sound (B and F), but everything else is the same, which is why these words rhyme.
