Tasis (ta’-sis): Sustaining the pronunciation of a word or phrase because of its pleasant sound. A figure apparent in delivery.

Today, we pray for a time when charity will-ll-ll-ll prevail-,-,-,-,.  Upon our hearts and in our homes, our cities, our states, our nations, and all-ll-ll-ll around our troubled globe—for peace on earth is-s-s-s peace for us—for you, for me, for one, for all-ll-ll-ll!
