The Harmony of Paired Elements: Synonyms, Homonyms, and Antonyms

Humor Is A Feat Of Verbal Gymnastics, and paired elements are examples of clever speechwriting commonly used in political addresses, philosophical sermons, academic oratory, and toasts.

Solely as humor, this device appears in formats as varied as Shavian wit, ad slogans, and bumper stickers. We find paired elements regularly as "a thought for today" in calendar memo pads. They are a bit classier than words of advice like "pay the butcher today" or "clean out the garage."

There are four variations of paired elements:

1. Paired phrases

2. Paired sentences

3. Paired words

4. Paired statistics
