The Grey Areas in KCSE English Paper one (101/ 1): The Making of an A in English.

Series Two

SOUND PATTERNS

THE SOUND PATTERNS IN PAPER 1 ARE:

  1. Onomatopoeia
  2. Idiophones
  3. Alliteration
  4. Assonance
  5. Consonance
  6. Rhyme

Example

THE GOLDFISH

The gaping goldfish in his bowl

I’m sure is happy on the whole:

He has that silly vacant look.

Because he has never read a book.

The rhyme scheme in this poem is regular. It is aabb. Rhyme creates rhythm/enhances musicality.

There is Alliteration in the first line. “The gapping goldfish” Always underline the sound alliterated.

In alliteration, it is the sound that matters-not the letter.

         These things are tough.

There is no alliteration in this line. The letters ‘th’ in ‘These’ and ‘th’ in ‘things’ represent different sounds.

          Things are thorough.

The letters ‘th’ represent the same sound. This is Alliteration.

           The cook killed a fly

Letter ‘c’ and ‘k’ represent the same sound. This is Alliteration.

             The cock in the center is mine.

There is no alliteration in this line ‘c’ in ‘cock’ and ‘c’ in ‘center’ do not represent the same sound

Consonant letters can represent assonance.

            My right style.

Letter ‘y’ represents the sound /ai/. This line has assonance.

Idiophone and Onomatopoeia should not be confused. Examples of idiophones are ‘pata’, ‘ku’, ‘ko ko’. These are actual sounds.

Onomatopoeia, on the other hand, are words that imitate the actual sounds. Words like ‘hiss ‘, ‘buzz’, ‘moo’, whistle’ among others.
