Word Repeater

WERD re-peet-er


The most common types of Word Repeater duplicate the first word; the technical name for the figure, anaphora (an-AH-for-a), is Greek for “carrying back.” You can also duplicate words at the end of phrases, clauses, or sentences—a device the name-loving Greek called epistrophe (an-TIS-tro-fee), or “a turning around.” Naturally, words can repeat in the middle as well. Repetition in general is useful in speeches or when you’re accusing someone—any time you want a strong emotional effect. 

I do not like them with a fox./ I do not like them in a box./ I do not like them here or there./ I do not like them anywhere. Green Eggs and Ham

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. John Adams
