ABSTRACT
The article presents a definition of the term CONSONANCE. In addition to its general meaning of harmony (agreement), c. has been used interchangeably in prosody with a wide variety of terms intended to designate certain phonic echoes. In a definition popular for some time, c. was said to require the repetition in stressed syllables of two or more consonant sounds without the intervening vowel echo, as live-leave.
