Epistrophe


Epistrophe (e-pis’-tro-fee): Ending a series of lines, phrases, clauses, or sentences with the same word or words.

I’ve have contacted all the witnesses relevant to the case. You’ve gathered all the documents relevant to the case. We’ve discussed every possible motive relevant to the case.  We still have a long way to go, but I think we’re making progress.

  • Post your own epistrophe on the “Comments” page!
