Homework Help: English

Posted by Franco on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 10:05am.

1) If you listen to a normal conversation in English you will realise that large sections fall into (??) perfect iambs. An iamb is the most common stress pattern in English and consists of (is made up of??) an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed one.
2)Do you know where I can check the pronunciation of the following rethorical figures as they are not included in my dictionary: hyperbole, lilotes,oxymorom,synecdoche
3) The synecdoche is a figure of speech in which the part is used to represent the whole (can you say "stands for the whole") and vice versa.
4)Charles Dickens was apprenticed to an attorney (is it correct?)
Can you check them please?
