In rhetoric, the assonance is a Stylistic device which consists of the repetition of a vocalic sound in several close words. For example, with the Phoneme /i/: “ All afflicts me, harms to me and conspires to harm to me” Racine ( Phèdre ). With the Phoneme /a/: " the pasha leant, caught the cat, took it along in its villa and placed it close to the lilac. "
Assonance is a process very employed in the medieval Poésie. The specific direction in this case, indicates homophonies of vowels at the end of the worms, followed by a hétérophonie of consonant (ex: world/shade). The tradition distinguishes as for the Rime female and male assonances. (Source, Jean Mazaleyrat, Elements of metric Frenchwoman , Armand Colin, 1965). A desirable evolution would be to use Allitération by extension to any recurrence of phonemes, vocalic or consonant, and to hold assonance with this specific direction.
