How is syntax used in a poem? Specifically in the poem "Jabberwocky"?
So syntax simplified is the way that sentences are structured. In Jabberwocky, syntax can be how long each sentence is, and how it works in a stanza, such as a long sentence being followed by a single word or short sentence. Another use of syntax could be the use of punctuation. The exclamation points are syntax because it effects the way the poem is paced and how it reads.
