    Default some problems with "schemes of hyperbaton "

    hi everybody
    please help with this (i have an exam after tomorow)
    in SCHEMES OF HYPERBATON
    there are 3 types :
    anastrophe
    parenthesis
    apposition

    the problem is that i can't find the diffirence between parenthesis and apposition
    for example

    ďAunt Sarah who is really my mother's cousin will be visiting next week"
    this is parenthesis

    "Albert Einstein, perhaps the greatest of scientists, seemed not to have mastered the physics of hair combing"
    this is apposition

    but it seems to me the same
    please help me

    Sorry for not replying before, but I wasn't in the forum much yesterday. This is a bit of a killer question, but, I believe, when set off by commas, it is an appositive if it is a a noun phrase. If the second said 'who was perhaps...' then it would no longer be an appositive.
