A Good Answer May Look Like This:

1.

Define the language device

An Antithesis is the pairing of opposite in parallel arrangement. Figure of balance in which two contrasting ideas are intentionally juxtaposed, usually through parallel structure: a contrasting of opposing ideas in adjacent phrases, clauses, or sentences.  

2.

Find and example of the language device in a speech

“We can stop talking about how great teachers are and start rewarding them for their greatness.”

3.

Give a full reference of where you found the speech

This quote came from the Remarks of Senator Barack Obama on New Hampshire Primary Night by Barack Obama on January 8, 2008. It is available at http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Remarks_of_Senator_Barack_Obama_on_New_Hampshire_Primary_Night

4.  Provide an explanation of why the sample fits the language device

In this quote, Obama uses the phrase “stop talking” intentionally juxtaposed with” start rewarding.” These opposing ideas are put in parallel arrangement. This antithesis would be charted as follows:

Stop

talking

Start

rewarding
