Yes, but those answers do not contain alliteration, and as such should be answered the way in which it was intended.

matt5, there is no "correct term" for these things, they are called what people want to call them and that can change over time. Languages are in constant flux and just because a new name becomes widely accepted does not mean that its wrong

"Cotton Candy" is known as "Fairy Floss" in Australia - which consequently would also make it an alliterative answer.

It is what it is, generally people think of the tower with the big clock as 'Big Ben'...... stop a hundred people in the street and show them a picture of it and ask 'what is the name of this?' and see how many say "Elizabeth Tower" or "St. Stephen's Tower" It is only the pedantic whingers that can't realise that fact.

Sep 12, 2012
The Minnesota Vikings aren't alliterative so no that doesn't work. For those of you who still haven't noticed, every answer has each word starting with the same letter ex. B ig B en with a B. P ink P anther with a P. That's what alliterative means. On that note you could make an arguement that CCR doesn't belong due to the Revival part of their name. Great quiz overall though.

Plenty of whinging here. The quiz is fine as it is. CCR contains an example of alliteration. The Big Ben/ Great Bell/ Elizabeth Tower distinction is a misconception favored by the sort of pedantic chap who loves nothing more than beginning a sentence by saying "Aaaaaactually... " The rest of the detractors don't seem to know what alliteration means. Except the Fairy Floss guy. That's my something learned for today.

Considering there are literally billions of people who would refer to the tower as 'The Big Ben', the tower is in fact called the Big Ben. The fact that its official name is actually different has become irrelevant, as language is not made by legislation.

Electric eels do not live in seas, or oceans for that matter. They in fact are not even eels and typically live in rivers, floodplains, or swamps. Calling them "sea serpents" is terribly inaccurate.

Someone may have pointed this out already, but I believe alliteration only refers to repeated consonant letters at the beginning of words (I googled it to verify and every definition I found referenced only repeated consonants at the beginning of words). So electric eel and alcoholics anonymous are not technically alliterative. The correct term for repeated vowel sounds is assonance, though the vowel sounds don't necessarily have to be at the beginning of the word.
+1
level 46
Jun 12, 2018
Yes that would be assonance, I remember my English teacher drilling that into my skull. But I suppose the 'l' sound in Electric Eel can count as alliteration. Or even the s in Alcoholics Anonymous, at the ends of the two words. Though I'm pretty sure the author meant the assonance of the first vowel letters.
