How we change what others think, feel, believe and do
Brachyology is the condensation of a phrase or sentence.
Love, hope, charity.
I want out.
Brachyology is typically accomplished by removal of words. Terseness in speech gives emphasis, stripping away unnecessary words and leaving the key words that convey the core meaning.
Brachyology is a general term for condensation. Ellipsis is often used to mean the same thing. Asyndeton and Zeugma are types of brachyology.
Praegnans constructio is a form of brachyology where two clauses are condensed into one.
Brachyology is also called brachylogia, particularly where a conjunction is omitted.
