Linguistic Phenomena/Devices
This is a list of some of the lesser known linguistic phenomena and devices used in English writing. You actually know what most of these are, you just didn't know what they were called. The list doesn't include the well-known devices (like synonym or metaphor). Extremely rare or poetic devices (like hypallage) and terms referring to common linguistic errors (like anacoluthon) are also excluded, although the line between device and error is sometimes a blurry one. The list does include some interesting linguistic phenomena that account for word formation, etc.
