Euphony

 

the organization of sound in artistic speech (primarily verse) based on the repetition of sounds; a synonym of phonics. In a narrower sense, the term “euphony” sometimes refers to articulatory and acoustic harmony in speech. A disharmonious succession of vowels at the boundary of two words is called a hiatus.
