  1. Asyndeton is a rhetorical device used in literature and poetry to eliminate conjunctions between the phrases and in the sentence, while still maintaining grammatical accuracy.

    Example: Sara runs, eats, sleeps. Instead of Sara runs and eats and sleeps.

  2. Anadiplosis- I felt exhausted and couldn’t concentrate and study today. However, if I don’t concentrate and study today, I won’t be able to go to college. If I won’t be able to go to college, I won’t be able to survive in this economy

  3. Diacope- It’s crazy how many people attended the event today, it’s just crazy!
