Why Do I Need This List?

A list of adjectives that start with the same letter is useful for creating alliteration. (Alliteration is a stylistic technique in which nearby words repeat the same initial consonant sound.)
  • You're a kind-hearted, knightly, and knowledgeable man, but I can't live with those knobbly knees.
  • (Even though "kind-hearted" starts with a K, it is not part of the alliterative string because the others start with an N sound. The noun "knees" is part of the alliteration.)
