All None

Deliberate use of harsh letter sounds: “The clash and clang of steel jarred him awake.”
A hyperbolic metaphor, as in “Each word was a lightning bolt to his heart.”
This is the reversal of grammatical order from one phrase to the next, exemplified in these two well-known quotes about evaluation: “Judge not, lest ye be judged” and “A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.”
Repetition of a point with different wording: “He’s passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! He’s expired and gone to meet his maker!” (etc., ad absurdum)
Imperative advice about how not to act: “Do not look a gift horse in the mouth.”
Repetition of one or more words after the interval of one or more other words: “People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.”
Advice: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
A definition or clarification of a term: “What we will be seeking . . . will be large, stable communities of like-minded people, which is to say relatives.”
Starting and ending a phrase, clause, or a sentence, or a passage, with the same word or phrase: “Nothing is worse than doing nothing.”
The repetition of a word at the end of each phrase or clause: “I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
