Enumeratio

Alexis Myers

Definition:

-figure of amplification in which a subject is divided into constituent parts or details, and may include a listing of causes, effects, problems, solutions, conditions, and consequences; the listing or detailing of the parts of something
Creating enumeratio, each sentence is a listing of details. These examples are all very descriptive and kind of choppy for a repetitive effect. The choppiness kind of emphasizes the details included in each sentence.

Why does Enumeratio work so well?

Enumeratio helps make detail more clear, just by breaking it up and listing it. It makes each sentence flow and helps a reader or listeners imagination. It could add imagery or just help catch someone's attention.
