Anastrophe


Anastrophe (an-as’-tro-phee): Departure from normal word order for the sake of emphasis. Anastrophe is most often a synonym for hyperbaton, but is occasionally referred to as a more specific instance of hyperbaton: the changing of the position of only a single word.

I am looking for my mind of peace. Things are so hectic since we opened it seems like my brain is being beaten by an egg beater, and I get hardly any sleep.

Whose idea was it to stay open 24-7? Probably mine out of a lack of experience and a strong dose of greed–it’s in my DNA. Damn

Let’s go back to the drawing board and try to figure out a reasonable business model–one that won’t wear us away before we’ve even had time to get a sense of whether we’ve got a winner here.

Let’s meet in the back room tonight.
