Hypozeuxis is a rhetorical term for an expression or sentence where every clause has its own independent subject and predicate.[1] If the same words are repeated in each clause, it is also an example of anaphora.

The opposite of hypozeuxis is hyperzeuxis, which may also be a form of zeugma or syllepsis.
