Rhetorical Device Definition

Rhetorical Devices are technical terms, and they must be understood strictly as defined in the TLS system. The definitions of the rhetorical devices form a taxonomic system, as in the case of Synonym Groups, and this systematisation of the definitions is in progress, but not yet implemented in the published version of TLS. The Chinese terminology, like the English, was developed by the editor of TLS and is being adjusted wherever our Chinese colleagues suggest superior alternatives.
