I found one new word in Like Family by Paolo Giordano.
1. assonance – “Nonetheless, he accepted that Mrs. A. had become Babette from a certain point on, his Babette, and I suspect that by assonance he associated that nickname with her babouches, the slippers that his nanny put on as soon as she entered our house and replaced side by side next to the chest at the end of the day.”
Assonance is literary device that takes place when two or more words close to each other repeat the same vowel sound but start with different consonant sounds. A well known example is, “The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.”
