Easy To Say?
It's always nice to get a little reminder about poem conventions, but I found myself thinking that some of the stuff I hadn't actually heard of before. For example that there was a term for good sounds versus bad. "Euphony refers to words containing consonants that permit an easy and smooth flow of spoken sound...the opposite of euphony is cacophony, in which percussive and choppy sounds make for vigorous and noisy pronunciation" (Roberts 193).
I guess I had never really thought about some words being easier to say and others not being. It was interesting to see how Roberts managed to tie this in to how important this may be in a poem where it may change the way the work is read.
