What is "Repetition of Words"?


    Repetition in English Language is the repeating of a word, within a sentence in order to PROVIDE EMPHASIS. ‘Repetition of words’ could be classified into many groups based on the placement of the words in a sentence. Different terms have been devised to denote different kinds of repetitions. Some of these terms are as follows: Adnominatio, Antanaclasis, Antistasis, Conduplicatio, Diacope, Diaphora, Epanalepsis, Epistrophe, Epizeuxis, Mesarchia, Mesodiplosis, Palilogia, Paregmenon, Ploce, Polyptoton, Symploce, etc.
