Alec, I think it's ironic that the word 'cacophony' sounds harsh just like what it means! I had a question, though. In your quiz, you said tongue twisters are examples of cacophony, but don't they just have the same syllable repeated? I didn't think that would be very harsh or clashing.

Alec, I really thought the way you broke down each word even the pronunciation was a great idea because I now know not just the meaning, but how to say it as well! Great job with your presentation.

Michelle, cacophony could relate to any sentence or group of words that are heard to see or say. I am not positive of this but, the websites i looked on explained that there doesn't always have to be clashing constants and that since tongue twisters are hard to say that it is is still cacophony. I mean you still could be right but i believe cacophony could be a little opinionated, and thanks Maggie!

This really helps me understand these two words! LLike Michelle said, Cacophony sounds harsher than Euphany so it will be easy to remember which defintion goes to which word. The quiz is helpful too.
All in all, a good project!
