Synonymia


Synonymia (si-no-ni’-mi-a): In general, the use of several synonyms together to amplify or explain a given subject or term. A kind of repetition that adds emotional force or intellectual clarity. Synonymia often occurs in parallel fashion. The Latin synonym, interpretatio, suggests the expository and rational nature of this figure, while another Greek synonym, congeries, suggests the emotive possibilities of this figure.

It’s Cyber Monday! Anything you want at a deep discount is acquirable, available, for sale, gettable, obtainable, purchasable, and securable with your credit card and a couple of clicks! For example,  you can get a six-pack of pink duct tape at Target for $21.98!!!!
