Resonant consonants

resonant.jpgMake a list of words that have the same consonants *sounds* as your first name. (Or name of a pet, your last name ...)

Joyce is a good example since the "j" sound can also come from a "g" and the "ce" sound can come from an "s".

Rhymezone can help. There's pull down menu there that says "Match consonants only". Which actually matches consonant sounds not just consonants.

Use 10 of those words in a story, paragraph or sentence.

This is in the same vein of the "By the sound of things" prompt: Paying attention to words that resonate together because of similar internal sounds.
