This figure is known to the rhetoricians as anadiplosis, or the beginning of a phrase with the final words of the previous phrase; it is also ploce, the insistent repetition of a word within the same line or phrase.
When being charged by ploce, do they have to do it in person or can they do it through letter?
That is to say, it’s a game about driving away from the ploce as fast as you can.
