Epizeugma


Epizeugma (ep-i-zoog’-ma): Placing the verb that holds together the entire sentence (made up of multiple parts that depend upon that verb) either at the very beginning or the very ending of that sentence.

Go to each and every day with hope and love. You owe it to yourself.

To each and every day, with hope and love go. You owe it to yourself.

Or:

Drove I my rusty old truck.

My rusty old truck I drove.
