    I've managed to become spoilt by tech and yet not know a thing about computers, pity me. It's what comes from spending inordinate amounts of time around geeks.

    So, who would agree that anaphora is a more effective tool for an emphatic didactic message than tricolon, or would it rather be the case that copulative asyndeton is the most crucial devise?

    Personally I've always been a big fan of chiasmus..

    Personally, I prefer the use caesura myself. Imagine a pause in the middle of a line, so simple, so effective.

    A caesura! What a device,
    but not as good as
    enjambement..

    And then... but forget that, as I much prefer a decent aposiopesis

    I would personally favour anaphora, as it can often carry more information than the others. Though it seems odd that you've listed tricolon and asyndeton as though they were mutually exclusive; is not "I came, I saw, I conquered" and example of both? But what do I know, I'm just a mathmo.

    Agree with you on chiasmus though.

    Now
    would
    you all
    stop
    using
    enjambment?
    It makes
    the page
    too long.

    I'm sorry to disappoint, but that wasn't an impressive joke.
