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.)
  • It transpired that the talented Tina was also somewhat tactless and troublesome.
  • (The verb "transpired" and the noun "Tina" are part of the alliterative string. They are not highlighted because this page is about adjectives.)
