Hi brytbin, welcome.

"Epizeuxis" is the repetition of a word or phrase, usually for emphasis.

"It's a twister! It's a twister!"

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away......"

Most of the inmates hang out in Nextian, so come over and help yourself to some pie. For today only the sweet are to the left and the savoury to the far left. There are drinks by the treehouse, but Speckles has stood on the Battenburg cake so I would not recommend it.

Thanks for the definition. I never thought to look it up; I just thought it was a Nextian word. I am an English teacher and I am teaching a class in rhetoric for the first time. Great new word. I will be over for some pie once I get all of these essays graded
