The repetition of a word or phrase
at the beginning of successive clauses, sentences, or lines.
As a form of repetition, anaphora is used to emphasize or draw the reader's attention.
"There will be no talking, no sleeping, and no slacking in this class."
a rhetorical or literary figure in which words, grammatical constructions, or concepts are repeated in reverse order, in the same or a modified form;
Another form of repetition, this is meant to emphasize a relationship between concepts
A word or phrase used in
everyday, ordinary speech.
Occasionally, these words or
phrases may be grammatically incorrect.
If an author makes a character use colloquialisms, this is a form of characterization. It could reveal the
class or attitude of the character.
While it is similar to colloquialisms, dialect is everyday or ordinary speech that is specific to a particular region.
Dialect can be used as another form
word choice; typically referring to
the author's word choice
Paying close attention to the author's word choice and patterns that exist (negative, positive, short and simple, sophisticated) can reveal the deeper meaning of the text.
A dramatically short sentence is exactly what it sounds like - a sentence that is much shorter than nearby sentences.
When an author uses a short sentence, it is often to make an important point.
" I need you to clean your room, wash your clothes, take out the trash, make dinner, and rearrange the living room. I need it now."
Hyperbole is not meant to be taken literally,
but it is meant to draw your attention.
Language that appeals to the senses; a detailed description of sights, sounds, smells, tastes, or physical sensations.
If an author describes anything in great detail, consider it to be important and consider the deeper meaning.
a figure of speech that identifies something as being the same as some unrelated thing for rhetorical effect, thus highlighting the similarities between the two.
A simile is a type of metaphor. A symbol can be a type of metaphor as well. We use metaphors everyday.
When you come across a metaphor, pay attention to what is being compared.
Metaphors can be IMPLIED
A question that is meant to provoke thought rather than elicit an answer.
When a writer asks a rhetorical question, he or she wants to ponder something.
“She was seeking confirmation of the voice and vision, and everywhere she found and acknowledged answers. A personal answer for all other creations except herself. She felt an answer seeking her, but where? When? How?”
A metaphor that uses like or as.
Similes are the obvious versions of metaphors. Even so, pay close attention to what is actually being compared.
