A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: Rhetorical repetition at the beginning of a phrase of the word or words with which the previous phrase ended; for example, He is a man of loyalty--loyalty always firm.
From Latin anadiplosis, from Greek anadiplosis, from anadiploun (to redouble), ana- + diploun (to double), from diplous (double).
"In fact, alliteration is one of 10 schemes of repetition discussed by
the authors, as is anadiplosis (repetition of the last word of one
clause at the beginning of the following clause, as in the lyrics to the
song 'Where Have All the Flowers Gone?')."
The man who thinks he can do without the world is indeed mistaken; but the man who thinks the world cannot do without him is mistaken even more. -Francois, duc de La Rochefoucauld
