Day 20: What is your favourite word?

Apart from every swear word?

One I learnt at a recent First Story creative writing course:

Diacope (dye-ah-ko-pee): a charming rhetorical device where a word or phrase is repeated, but with another word or phrase snuggled in between. In Greek it means “cut in two”. Think of ‘To be or not to be’ or ‘Bond. James Bond.’
