  • MY 2 cents: I normally paraphrase via my understanding of course, with a tinge of digression, only to ramify our knowledge (and I like to read my writing).

    A style of Baroque verse characterized by pretentious

    prolixity and circumlocutious syntax, to obfuscate meaning.

    Gongorism is an eponym derived from Don Luis de Góngora y Argote.

    A synonym for Gongorism is Culteranismo.
