Share it Please

Figure of speech.



(Greek ἀποστροφή, apostrophé, "turning away"; the final e being sounded)

Is an exclamatory rhetorical figure of speech, when a speaker or writer breaks off and directs speech to an imaginary person or abstract quality or idea. In dramatic works and poetry written in or translated into English, such a figure of speech is often introduced by the exclamation "O".
