Bottom uses the word "Pyramus" many times to emphasis the word. This is also called alliteration as it uses the letter "p" repetitively. "Not a whit; I have a device to make all well. Write me a prologue, and let the prologue seem to say we will do no harm with our swords, and that Pyramus is not killed indeed. And for the better assurance, tell them that I, Pyramus, am not Pyramus, but Bottom the weaver. This will put them out of fear".
