    "Full Fathom Five" by William Shakespeare Full fathom five thy Father lies, Of his bones are Corral made: Those are pearls that were his eyes, Nothing of him that doth fade, But doth suffer a Sea-change Into something rich & strange Sea-Nymphs hourly ring his knell ding — dong. Hark! Now I hear them — ding-dong, bell. Use the poem to answer the question below in "Full Fathom Five," which two sound devices does the poet use? Support your answer with details from the beginning and end of the poem.

    I had this question in school, it uses a onomatopoeia and an alliteration. The onomatopoeia is the words "Ding-Dong" because it imitates the sound of a bell and an onomatopoeia is where the word relates to a sound. The alliteration was the words are "Hark! Now I hear Them" and "Full Fathom Five thy Father Lies". Why? Well that is because an alliteration is where words with the same beginning sound occur or repeat after each other like, When We Were Washing dishes, We Wanted to Watch television about Whales after our chores. There you go! Hope it helps!
