Aphorismus nedir?

Aphorismus  is a figure of speech that calls into question if a word is properly used (“How can you call yourself a man?”). It often appears in the form of a rhetorical question which is meant to imply a difference between the present thing being discussed and the general notion of the subject.

Examples

  • “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” Bill Clinton, August 17, 1998
