• ( Antimetabole, Chiasmus ) ---- Correctly Grouped?

    From HenHanna@21:1/5 to All on Fri Apr 5 03:10:56 2024
    XPost: sci.lang, alt.usage.english

    The phrase "Eat to live, Not live to eat"
    is an example of antimetabole.

    Here's why: -- Antimetabole involves the repetition
    of the same words in a reversed order.


    Antimetabole:

    -- Those who can, do. Those who can't, criticize. (George Bernard Shaw)

    -- Silence is golden, speech is silver. (Proverb)

    -- We live to learn, and learn to live. (Latin Proverb)

    -- "Fair is foul, and foul is fair" (Shakespeare's Macbeth)


    Chiasmus:
    -- By day the frolic, and the dance by night. (Samuel Johnson)

    -- The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold
    as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1)

    -- Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness
    thrust upon them. (Shakespeare's Twelfth Night)

    -- "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for
    your country" (JFK's Inaugural Address)

    of the same words in a reversed order

    I read this somewhere, maybe related to someone brain:

    On the left there's nothing right, on the right there's nothing left.

    Or perhaps it's a statement about politics.

    In the case of motoring here in the UK:
    The right side is the wrong side; the left side is the right side.

    Furthermore:
    Two wrongs don't make a right but three lefts do.


    So an odd number of wrongs is correct?
    What about 0 wrongs, then?

    On the left there's nothing right, on the right there's nothing left.

    ....or a political situation?

    I guess it's like the old Soviet joke:

    There's no news in "Truth", and no truth in "News".

    *There were two major national newspapers in the USSR:
    - "Pravda" [truth], published by the Central Committee of the
    Communist Party, largely devoted to party policy
    - "Izvestia" [news], published by the Supreme Soviet (government),
    mainly foreign news


    There's no news in "Truth", and no truth in "News".

    the 2nd part is what Trump has been saying for several years.


    ----------

    Or is it like:

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

    ?



    did you hear the one about Horticulture?


    Why is there so much affinity between ( Antimetabole, Chiasmus ) and Wit?
    ---------- i suppose Freud has already analyzed that well in his famous book.

    There's nothing wrong with that.

    Always check your pockets twice. You never know what the Left hand stole
    from the Right.
