Google’s algorithm have a peculiar way of interpreting literary devices, primarily the yield clarity in figurative searches vs the vague interpretation or inability to identify rhetorical clauses or phrases. Figurative devices are basically the literal denotation of meaning that socially evolves into nonliteral connotative attributions; whereas rhetorical devices are predicated on the power of persuasion and not necessarily the deviation from literal to nonliteral. Also, figurative meanings are not centered around persuasion like rhetorics, thus, although both devices are categorized under the literary umbrella, they’re partitioned linguistic concepts. See Part II Search Engine Optimization (SEO), (SERP), (NLP), Metaphor, Analogy, Metonyms

Metaphors, idioms, adages, proverbs, and other figure of speech yield clarity in the search engine because the syntax of these phrases are ingrained in social dialogues, and becomes part of an orthographic system. Examples are, “break a leg,” which is an idiom deriving from a metaphor; in the search query the figurative meaning supersedes the denotational or literal syntax of the phrase. Rhetorical phrases render a different dynamic because the underlying phenomenon is more abstract and deals more with referential associations, grammatical context and repetition. There’s a number of rhetorics that goes under the search query radar, and that’s because the meanings don’t ascribe social adaptation like figuratives do, and is more centered around repetition.

Anaphora is a rhetorical device that makes referential associations with preceding phrase or clause in a sentence; it’s the use of a pronoun to induce repetition by making coreferences between itself and the reference which is the antecedent or referent. Examples are; “John plays the guitar, he loves music;” the pronoun “he,” is the anaphora because it refers back to the proper name “John,” the antecedent, which is the preceding expression. The etymology of anaphora dates back to Greek origins for “to carry back.”

Cataphora is anticipatory because it uses pronouns to refer ahead of other linguistic units in phrases and sentences. Examples are; “he loves music, so John plays the guitar;” the pronoun “he,” is the cataphora because it coreferences to the antecedent “John.” Technically “John,” is the “postcedent because the prefix “ante,” in antecedent means before,” or “Infront,” and the prefix “post,” in postcedent refers to “after or behind.”

Antecedent is a thing that logically precedes another, as etymologically explained in previous paragraph; antecedent is predicated on associations based on referentiality, usually preceding a pronoun in a sentence that coreferences the anaphora in a sentence. Postcedent is the contrast between the coreference relationship between antecedent and anaphora, in that the pronoun precedes the postcedent in a sentence to induce the cataphora rhetoric.

Anaphora and cataphora are horizontal coreference antonyms in that anaphora makes referential associations with the former part of a phrase or sentence, and cataphora makes referential associations with the latter part of the phrase or sentence. They’re rhetorically equivalent within the text themselves. Another way to remember the relationships are the forward and backward textual cohesion between the pronoun reference to the antecedent and the postcedent reference to the pronoun. This second example is tautology because it’s different wordings to express the same conceptual meaning between anaphora and cataphora.

Anaphora is a central topic in computational linguistics and Natural Language Processing (NLP), because it’s an expression reliant on antecedent references, a contrast to cataphora that depends on postcedent references. The above image is the visual depiction of a deixis, it sorta shares a commonality with anaphora in that their interpretations are referential and context dependent. Will explore more of this subject in details; primarily, Linguistics Organic Search Engine Theory (LOSE-T) ability to solve the problem of Anaphoric Resolution in Natural Language Processing (NLP).
