Anadiplosis is the repetition of a clause or sentence’s final word(s) at the beginning of the clause or sentence that follows it. Often strung together to emphasize a linear progression (think Yoda’s mantra, “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”). With a little reflexivity, it can also set up chiasmus or antimetabole.
I hate the slog; the slog is awful. Awful things are no good – good things are much better.
He entered the house, and the house had many rooms, but the rooms were full of boxes, the boxes were stuffed with notes, the notes contained a warning, and that warning read “Beware the slog.”
This is a fun one. Chiasmus occurs when parallel phrases/clauses are syntactically or semantically inverted. It can be as simple as reversing parts of speech (such as the order of a verb and its adverb), or it can set up statements with poetic symmetry. Probably better explained by showing than telling.
I hate that the slog exists, and what it does I despise.
I wish that the slog would suddenlydisappear and diehorribly.
From a muse you get inspiration; you only get inhibitionfrom the slog.
The slogis stupidlike a rock, but like a boulder it can crush you.
