Epiphora is a counterpart of another figure of speech anaphora. An anaphora is a recurrence of the first part of successive sentences, whereas in an epiphora repetition happens in the last part of successive clauses and sentences.

Epiphora also is known as epistrophe, is a stylistic device in which a word or a phrase is reiterated at the ends of successive clauses. Examples of epiphora are found in literary pieces, debates, and persuasive writing. Anaphora is a restatement of the same word or phrase at the end of successive clauses or sentences.

Anaphora refers to a word or group of words repeated at the beginning of sentences or clauses while a epiphora also known as apostrophe refers to a word or group of words repeated at the end of a clauses or sentences.
