- n. Plural form of caesura.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Also: a great moment to point out alliteration, caesurae and the like.
(It also lands him with a possibly life threatening case of the hiccups, which accounts for the caesurae in the following quote):
"IN THE OCCUPIED CITY, was it when you fell in love with arbitrary CApitaL LettERS, it alics, caesurae | | and repetitions repetiTIOns?"
They are like caesurae in poetry, permitting a mental or physical breath before the speaker goes on.
