Rhetorical Device Quizzes, Questions & Answers

Alliteration, allegory, absurdity, and assonance; anaphora, epiphora, and hypophora; parallelism, pathos, and parody. Rhetorical devices are the tools of every writer and speaker to enliven tired prose and change the mind of even the hardest-hearted (or headed) opponent.
