What does the poetic form syntax use?
March 29, 2011 4:10AM
"Syntax" is not a poetic form. Rather, it refers to the order of words within a phrase or sentence.
Inverted syntax is used to achieve rhyme, meter, or mood within a poem. An example of syntax inversion is the style in which Yoda, of Star Wars, speaks.
