repetition
Repetition
  • Repetition is the repeated use of a word, phrase, or clause more than once for emphasis.
example
Example

The curfew law should be repealed—repealed immediately in fairness to the community, the police and the students.

parallelism
Parallelism
  • Parallelism is the repetition of the same grammatical form to express equal, or parallel ideas. A noun is paired with a noun, a phrase with a phrase, a clause with a clause, and so on.
example7
Example
  • This week, the Riverdale High School student council had to cancel its annual charity Bowl-a-Thon—not because of a lack of interest, not because of a shortage of funds, and not because of a failure to sign up enough enthusiastic volunteers.
rhetorical question
Rhetorical Question
  • Rhetorical questions are questions that are not meant to be answered but are asked for effect.
example9
Example
  • Should students who are out late because of such events be jailed or fined? Should such school activities be dropped?
argument by analogy
Argument by Analogy
  • Argument by analogy draws a parallel between basically dissimilar events or situations.
example11
Example
  • If the curfew law aims to reduce youth crime, it mistakenly targets the wrong hours. It is much like shutting the corral gate after the horses have escaped.
loaded words
Loaded Words
  • Loaded words carry strong emotional associations.
example13
Example
  • Our baseball team won the tournament, pulverizing the Brantley County Herons in the final.
