There are several readily recognizable techniques employed by all politicians, regardless of nationality, platform or ideology, when delivering speeches. Repetition is one of the most obvious of these. While attempting to emphasize a particular point, the speaker will often use nested parallel clauses and repeat words or whole phrases within a single sentence. This feature is also commonly found in poetry and song. Like rhyme, repetition can make a sentence or phrase “catchy,” or more memorable, creating a rhythm for the words which can stick with the listener as much or more than the actual words spoken do. Often this repetition will extend beyond just a single thought, and a word or phrase will be repeated several times throughout the entire address.
