Apophony - Any alternation of a word that changes it grammatically. Most commonly vowel change changing resulting in a change of tense.


Sing, Sang, Sung, Song. Apophony changing verb tense along with the original noun.


Mindset of thinking you are throwing from a straight line to an "L" shape i suppose could fit. If you are Changing from an I to an L mindset. I dont think it's right though, since my shots are "D" shaped.

The delivery is described as a straight line because that is the best (easiest) mnemonic to get a thrower to focus on the swing plane.

There are no straight lines in nature.
