There are many different strings and parts of the English language out there – one being what is known as an alliteration. Here is a list of alliterations for every letter of the alphabet.

An alliteration is a sentence which has almost every word in the sentence beginning with the same letter. This is usually classified tongue twister, a sentence which is quite hard to say. This is due to the similar, but not identical syllables which are strung together in an unusual way.

Be sure to see another list of alliterations, Alliterations for the Alphabet – the Supreme Second.

A: An ape ate an avocado.
B: Baby bananas beat buckwheat bread.
C: Can candles chuck computers?
D: Dogs dig dumb ditches.
E: Epic Elephants eat edible eggs.
F: Fishy flounders fly fast.
G: Groups greet game groups.
H: Happy hippos hassle happily.
I: Itches irritate ill iguanas.
J: Job jogged jingly.
K: Kill known knobs.
L: Lovely lizards live lazily.
M: Mary mumbled many metaphors.
N: Natalie nibbled nine nuggets.

    Here are some tongue twister for your friends, you say? If you’re a big enough of a loser to take the time to find this, chances are you don’t have any friends.
    I only found this because, for a school poetry project, this site was one of the few, retarded safe-sites we were allowed to use.

    I don’t know why people have to be like the moron who posted the comment above. If you think he should be banned from this site, just click on my name. That’s all you have to do; I rigged it so it sends a tally to the maker of this page for every time someone clicks it. That way, they know how many people want the account banned. Cool, hmm?
