I have a test over literary devices and we have to write which devices are used in a speech of some sort. But I need to find a way to practice it...any advice or websites?

    http://www.tnellen.com/cybereng/lit_terms/

    http://www.uncp.edu/home/canada/work/allam/general/glossary.htm

    Probably the best way to study these is to make flashcards for yourself with 3"x5" index cards -- put the literary term on one side and the definition and at least one example on the other.
