But mnemonic formulas (“i before e except after c”), proverbs (“a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”), oral traditions (“rosy fingered dawn”), children’s literature (“I meant what I said and I said what I meant / an elephant’s faithful, one hundred percent”) in short, any linguistic configuration serving purposes in which cognitive functions like attention, learnability, and recall are at a premium takes a form that rhetorical theorists in the classical and early modern periods identified as a figure.

The idea is that glasses have three parameters spherical curvature, elliptical curvature, and axis of the ellipse. The usual options for the first two are only about 100 200 lenses. With a round lens, you can set the axis in any direction. That was like my first experience playing with a live band. Lyrically, I’ve just always loved the song because of what it speaks about. And, musically, it just has this amazing feel to it.
Allow questions of all kinds; answer them honestly. If you don’t know an answer, don’t offer a BS explanation or brush off the question.
