Terminology Tuesday: Homoioteleuton

homoioteleuton (Gk. ὅμοιος, ‘like’, and τελευτή, ‘ending’). In MSS, the repetition of the same sequence of letters or words in two neighboring places, considered as a source of error in copying. Where the repeated sequence occurs at the beginning of a word or phrase, the alternative expression ‘homoioarcton’ is occasionally used.
