Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
It’s fun to use obscure literary and rhetorical terms that nobody knows for techniques that we use all the time.
All anacoluthon really is is using funky syntax within a sentence so that the reader’s, or maybe the listener’s, expectations aren’t quite met and — well, it’s maybe more like ungrammatical speech with its odd breaks and, as I like to think of it, rhythmic peculiarities, sort of. Probably makes the reader sit up and pay a little more attention, so. Pretty cool.
Go ahead and use it!
