Flag Phrases can be attention words, similes, absolutes, connecting words, summaries, repeated words, superlative statements etc.
I applied attention words to Matthew 7:4:
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
It really changed the scripture for me!
We have all heard that verse many times. When you read the emphasis on behold, it is like he is saying to you:
Look at yourself.
Stop judging other people and take a look at your own problems.
You freaking have a BEAM IN YOUR EYE!!!
And you are worried about a speck of dust???"
This showed to me the difference between merely reading the scriptures, and taking the time to slow down and study them.
