What is Hypophora?
Hypophora is the rhetorical technique of asking a question and immediately answering it, wither in a single sentence of two consecutive sentences. It can be a very effective technique for organizing the flow of ideas in an essay or for establishing a compelling tone in a persuasive piece. But, like all rhetorical tropes, it can become distracting if over-used.

What is the relationship between classifications and subjects headings and why are they important?
It's a common misconception that classifications (as comprising the Dewey Decimal System or LOC system,) are devised according to subject matter. In fact, classification is according to discipline or field. A single subject may, and will, be treated in dramatically different ways by a variety of disciplines. Therefore, not every book on the same subject will by classified or collocated together. Subject headings allow us to search across disciplinary classifications, which can help to broaden or narrow a search accordingly. For example, works with the subject heading "Dogs" might, in any given collection, be found in separate classifications for Animal Husbandry, Visual Art, and Poetry.
How can one recognize the differences and similarities between metrical, accentual, and syllabic poetry.
In accentual poetry, each line will contain a consistent number of accents, but those accents may be distributed throughout each line in a variety of ways, with an irregular pattern of unstressed syllables between accents. Metrical poetry will also contain a consistent number of accents in each line, but those accents will be evenly distributed within each line, with a reliable number of unstressed syllables separating accents. Syllabic poetry will simply contain a consistent number of syllables in each line, or sometimes just in each stanza. There won't be any consistent number of accents per line in this style.
