Abstract

The alternate form can be defined as at least two basic thoughts that repeat in alternating order. E. W. Bullinger notes that alternates occur when "the lines are parallel in thought, and in the use of synonymous words." If we represent each thought or line with a letter of the alphabet, the simplest type of alternate can be represented as A-B/A-B.
