My book does not have Shakespearian examples but it's a good reference and one
of the few that deals with this subject at all. It has the further advantage of
simplicity and clarity. Ploce, according to my book, is pronounced PLO-see.

And the book is:
The Complete Stylist by Sheridan Baker
2nd Edition Crowell 1972

Hope this helps,
Bob Williams

For Eric Armstrong --

I find R.A. Lanham's _Handlist of Rhetorical Terms_ useful for teaching
students about devices in Shakespeare. It has definitions of terms and examples
and also a section for identifying what you think is a rhetorical device when
you don't know what it's called.
