What does this fun-to-say word mean?
When would epanalepsis be used?
- to emphasize the word or phrases, such as the main idea or concept
The beginning and end are the part of a sentence people focus on the most, so using the same word/phrases in these spots will make the writers main point very clear.
- The Bible
One example, from the bible, would be "In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." -John 16:33
Try it out; it never hurts to try!
"People aren't perfect, and that's what makes us people." -Example of epanalepsis from myself
