If the repeated word or phrase comes at the end of lines, sentences or paragraphs we have a type of repetition that is called epiphora. The research we have carried out has revealed that epiphora, though not as widely used as anaphora, still remains one of the frequently used stylistic devices in the English language that make the speech more powerful and impressive.
If the last word or phrase of one part of an utterance is repeated at the beginning of the next part, thus hooking the two parts together, this compositional pattern is called anadiplosis. The analysis of the speeches we have carried out has revealed that anadiplosis is another widely used device which also has a strong impact on the listeners in both languages. This device also helps politicians make their speech more effective.
