Cataploce; or Sudden Exclamation

Resource Toolbox

Parenthetic Addition by Way of Exclamation

Cat´-a-plok´-ee (καταπλοκή), from κατά (kata), down, and πλοκή (plokee), a twining or plaiting. The figure is so called because the short sentence so interposed is intertwined with another. This name is given to a parenthesis when it takes the form of a sudden exclamation.

Ezekiel 16:23-24.-"And it came to pass after all thy wickedness

(woe, woe unto thee! saith Adonai-Jehovah)
That thou hast also built unto thee," etc.

Romans 9:2-3.-This is a kind of Cataploce as well as Epitrechon (see page 428), and Euche.
