  • A rhetorical device that consists of repeating a sequence of words at the beginnings of neighboring clauses, thereby lending them emphasis.

  • Example:

      • Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities


Allusion

Allusion

  • A figure of speech that makes a reference to, or representation of, a place, event, literary work, myth, or work of art, either directly or by implication.

  • Commonly made to the Bible, nursery rhymes, myths, famous fictional or historical characters or events, and Shakespeare. They can be used in prose and poetry.

  • Example:

    • “Christy didn't like to spend money. She was no Scrooge, but she seldom purchased anything except the bare necessities.”

    • “Adult Entertainment”

    • “Pre-owned”
