In Topic: Rhetorical Devices Used in Literary Logic

22 June 2017 - 01:52 PM

Here's some more devices that offer rhythm and melodic meter to text and speech:
Epizeuxis or diacope
These are words or phrases that are repeated in a rapid succession within the same sentence to emphasize a point or idea. 
The purpose of epizeuxis is to create greater emotion to the listener or reader. Jabbing the air with emphasis, it motivates and inspires a memorable focus on thoughts and ideas through deep sentiment. 
Because of its repetive nature it also inspires memorization of ideas on a sub-conscious level. These devices are used as artistic effects in lyrics, prose and poetry. How many songs have you heard that use these techniques? Have you ever considered the ideas presented in the lyrics of your favorite songs? 
There are two other terms that use the same technique. 
One is an Epistrophe. 
These are repetitive words or phrases at the end of sentences that call attention to a point of interest. 
The opposite of this effect brings us to the second term. 
Anaphora - basically the same definition as Epistrophe except they come at the beginning of sentences.

Irony is a literary technique & rhetoric device that has been used for many years in speech, art and everyday life. Although irony has been used for a long time, there hasn’t been an exact definition of irony. There have been hundreds of definitions suggested over the years, however, a general consensus is that:
Irony is a figure of speech which is a contradiction or incongruity between what is expected and what actually occurs.
Most of the definitions of irony are something along these lines, though there is often disagreement about the specific meaning of this term.





You cheated.


That's pasta.



In Topic: Improve Your Memory with Mnemonic Devices

Welcome to the Mnemonicizer, the Mnemonic Device Device. A mnemonic device is a sentence that helps us to memorize a string of words. For example, music students use "Every Good Boy Does Fine" to remember the order of notes on the treble clef. (E, G, B, D, F). Math students use "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally" to remember the order of arithmetic operations (Parentheses, Exponent, Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract.). But the range of usefulness extends beyond music and math. They are an invaluable resource whenever you are trying to remember something.
