Euphony is a sound device consisting of several words that are pleasant to the ear. The sounds produced by these words are meant to be soothing rather than harsh or alarming. Examples of euphony are harsher sounds that can produce the opposite euphony: cacophony, which produces high-pitched, discordant effects, such as the sound of alarms or sirens. This euphony, on the other hand, can be compared to bird song, in the sense that these words create almost sweet, musical sounds. Euphony is achieved in writing through the use of longer vowel sounds like ‘oo’ in ‘soft’ consonant sounds, as well as liquid or nasal sounds like ‘l,’ ‘m’, ‘n’, and ‘w’.
An author can create euphony in many different ways, such as by using the vowels and consonants mentioned above, or by employing other literary devices, such as rhythm, rhyme, consonance, and assonance to create a harmonious sound of euphony. set of literary works.
Most works of poetry and prose literature contain some examples of euphony in which authors pay attention to creating harmonious sounds in their writing.
Due to the fact that euphony is meant to please the ear, many lullabies are examples of euphony in order to lull a baby to sleep (even the word “pause” is an example of euphony). Here are some of the sample songs:
I want to see you twinkle
In the sky or in the sea
a real diamond
The woods are beautiful, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before we sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
