English term or phrase: assonance
Definition from The Poetry Archive :
Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds in words that are close to each other - this also includes diphthongs. Like alliteration, it is the sound rather than the letter used that is important.

Example sentence(s):
  • The Greeks occasionally employed assonance for the sake of its aesthetic effect but took no pains to avoid it when no effect was intended, even when the repetition of sound seems to us displeasing.
  • While the bling of rhyme and meter are exciting, sometimes what a poem needs is the soft power of assonance. The Fix
  • In more modern verse, stressed assonance has become the main literary device in modern rap, starting with gangsta rap like 2Pac in the 1990s, departing from rap's foundations in the 80's rapper like Slick Rick when rhyme at the end of each line was the cornerstone of poetic expression.

Definition from Wikipedia:
Asonancija je glasovna figura tj. ponavljanje istih samoglasnika da bi se postigao odredjeni ritam ili efekat.

Example sentence(s):
  • Asonanca se može protegnuti kroz cijelu kiticu ili pjesmu. Ako se ponavlja na početku riječi, govorimo o glasovnoj anafori, a ako se ponavlja na kraju riječi, govorimo o glasovnoj epifori. - Wikipedia
