Is this amplification??

Ludicrous then, possible now. You can do anything now and it won't cause a shock. Just a shrug. Everything is cool. A line has been drawn and on the other side of it is the past, both darker and more brightly intense than the present

Amplification?

"The dinosaur skeleton was the centerpiece in a vast hall that—with its many arches, its glass, and steel roof, its broad staircase and mosaic floor—looked like a cross between a church and a railway station."

I would like to know if there is amplification in this sentence.

Thanks

Help !!!

What would this be ???

Let us not discuss the economy of this country; let us also not discuss the spending habits of its citizens; and finally, let us not discuss the divide between the rich and poor; instead, let’s talk about the best restaurants.

That's anaphora

No it isn't

Anaphora is the repetition of a word at the beginning of successive clauses.

Yes, it is.

Anaphora includes repeated phrases. "Let us" is repeated at the beginning of almost every clause.

In addition, it is an example

In addition, it is an example of paralipsis: emphasizing a subject by professing to say nothing about it.

Is this amplification?

Instead of 'the channel crashed....'
' the channel reverberated with the ear-splitting boom'
thx in advace

yes

Yes because you are amplifying what you have already stated.

Sounds more like redundancy

Sounds more like redundancy than anything else, just sloppy writing.

Amplification: I knocked, making sure not to hit the door too loud and disturb whoever's inside, but only to get the attention of someone nearby.

Amplification

When a plain sentence is too abrupt and fails to convey the full implications desired, amplification comes into play when the ...."mwriter".... adds more to the structure to give it more meaning.

There's a typo in this sentence. Please, correct it. No need to publish this message.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 01/30/2012 - 03:47
Indeed...

Maybe that was just amplification of the sentence :D?
