#11 in an occasional series -- your challenge is to use it at least once today.
It's been a while, hasn't it?
IsocolonLiterally, something like "equal member". (Stop sniggering at the back there!)
Means: composing a sentence from elements of the same length and structure.
Examples: the classic example is Veni, vidi, vici -- which also demonstrates alliteration of course. How clever. In English you don't get that, but I came, I saw, I conquered is only let down from being perfect isocolon by the third verb being a bit too long. Easy come, easy go would be a modern example. Anyone come up with some more?
Not to be confused with megacolon. (If you value your digestion.)
