Language: Triplets

22 05 2011

Using sets of three is one stylistic feature that we can use in essays:

It is all in the game. The determination in training, the exhilaration of success, the celebration of teamwork.
-Ezra Aik, 2T13

We train so that we can get faster, we train so that we can get stronger, we train do that we can get faster.
-Ezra Aik, 2T13

Note: Here, the sentence stem, “we train so that we can” is repeated (three times) to good effect – triplet repetition is a subset of triplets.
