    Alistair Cook ( in a Letter from Spain.. no I mean ‘America’…); Jon Cleary, mate; Mount Cook National Park, but that’s a mountain not a hill, and someone nicked the cairn… Tuvalu? and a repeated word or expression at the end of a series of words or expressions, for the people, of the people and in the magazine ‘People’.

    If epistrophe is at the end of the phrase or sentence, is there a word for doing the same at the start of sentences?

    I would have thought that the Maldives were a definite contender with Tuvalu. I recall it being claimed that the highest point there was in the 2 – 3 meter range, but then I’m not sure of what the Tuvalu high point is. My Guess, just to be different, the Maldives.

    It probably depends on at which place has someone built a big sandcastle lately.
