'We think it's a standard literary device being used on a larger scale than had been previously realized.

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

I have a new favorite website: Arrant Pedantry.  This list of "12 Mistakes" that writing teachers make when talking to students should be posted on writing teacher's foreheads, so that students can see them, like you do when you play that kind of card game where everyone can see your cards except you.
