anadiplosis (an-uh-duh-PLO-sis) noun
Rhetorical repetition at the beginning of a phrase of the word or words with which the previous phrase ended; for example, He is a man of loyalty--loyalty always firm.
[Late Latin anadiplosis, from Greek anadiplosis, from anadiploun, to redouble : ana- + diploun, to double (from diplous, double).]
"In fact, alliteration is one of 10 schemes of repetition discussed by the authors, as is anadiplosis (repetition of the last word of one clause at the beginning of the following clause, as in the lyrics to the song `Where Have All the Flowers Gone?')."
Stephen Wilbers, Rhetorical devices will help you write with style,Minneapolis Star Tribune, Jan 8, 1999.
