Writing means different things to me. I'm a storyteller, a book editor, and a songwriter. For me, it's like breathing.

Weird Word Wednesday


(of a line, couplet, or stanza of verse) ending part-way through a sentence or clause which continues in the next.
Example sentences
‘In the last four lines, all of them enjambed, Ryan begins to break against the units of grammatical and syntactical sense that give the first nine lines their air of balanced authority and control.’
‘Another aural effect created by it in highly enjambed poems is a counterpoint of the pauses expected at the end of lines with the pauses that occur mid-line as they frame a completed thought or grammatical unit.’
Late 19th century: from French enjamber ‘stride over’ + -ed.
