Alliteration Alters: Its Influence in Perceptions Fo Product Promotions and Pricing

We investigate alliteration—the repetition of initial sounds in two or more consecutive and/or closely adjacent words—in the formation of pricing perceptions. We find that consumers evaluate alliterative presentations higher than nonalliterative presentations (i.e. 4 Fables $40 vs. 3 Fables $29) even when nonalliterative presentations represent a better deal.
