|Synonyms||allotheta, alloeosis, alloiosis, enallage|
|Etymology||from Gk. allothen “from another place” and theteuo “to work for”|
Substitution of one case, gender, mood, number, tense, or person for another.
Each of the students should bring their notebook. (Through alleotheta, the word "their" has been substituted for the more traditional but non-inclusive possessive pronoun, "his.")
|Related Figures||Figures of Substitution, enallage, antiptosis|
|Notes||I'm not sure what I think of this example--esp considering it's such a modern example of an ancient greek term. The Type Of strikes me as Substitution--didn't that used to be an option?|
