Diacope 


Diacope (di-a’-co-pee): Repetition of a word with one or more between, usually to express deep feeling.

What? Me, self-absorbed? I can’t imagine what would make you think I’m self-absorbed.

I take care of myself. I watch out for my interests. I stay in the lead. That’s called being prudent.

I think what you’re saying is stupid. Self absorbed? Me? Never!

Well-balanced? Bright? Articulate? Most important person in the world? Definite yes, yes, yes, yes.

Now, get out of here. You’re fired!
