A quote from The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss lists
"actors and acrobats, musicians and hand magicians, jugglers and jesters"
My first thought on reading it was that "hand magicians and musicians" (ABAB) would have a more quippish tone than "musicians and hand magicians" (ABBA), but upon reflection I decided that such a phrasing would be too singsong, whereas the inversion feels more cleverly poetical to me.
Is there a literary term for the inverted repetition of similar sounds? I've come up with ABBA internal rhyme or with chiastic parallelism, but I'm wondering if there's a single word that describes this pattern better.
