you don't even know what tmesis is, do you? I've got you stumped, haven't I? bully for me for having such a big vocabulary, eh?

tmesis = the breaking up of a compound word, usually through the insertion of a related word

Somebody go and jump on Ghyle and wrest that dictionary from him, otherwise there’s no knowing where he will end up!

anastrophe

I'm not using a dictionary; these words I know.

I'm a poet. I should know some technical terms.

anastrophe is inversion of normal word order; I tend to use it now and then
