Enjambment

In poetry, enjambment is incomplete syntax at the end of a line. Lines without enjambment are end-stopped. In reading, the delay of meaning creates a tension, released when the word or phrase that completes the syntax is encountered. In spite of the apparent contradiction between rhyme, which heightens closure, enjambment, which delays it, the technique is compatible with rhymed verse. In couplets, the closed or heroic couplet was a late development. Enjambment has a long history in poetry. Homer used the technique, it is the norm for alliterative verse where rhyme is unknown. In the 32nd Psalm of the Hebrew Bible enjambment is unusually conspicuous, it was used extensively in England by Elizabethan poets for dramatic and narrative verses, before giving way to closed couplets. The example of John Milton in Paradise Lost laid the foundation for its subsequent use by the English Romantic poets; the start of The Waste Land by T. S. Eliot, with only lines 4 and 7 end-stopped: These lines from Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale are enjambed: Meaning flows as the lines progress, the reader's eye is forced to go on to the next sentence.

It can make the reader feel uncomfortable or the poem feel like "flow-of-thought" with a sensation of urgency or disorder. In contrast, the following lines from: Romeo and Juliet are end-stopped: Each line is formally correspondent with a unit of thought—in this case, a clause of a sentence. End-stopping is more frequent in early Shakespeare: as his style developed, the proportion of enjambment in his plays increased. Scholars such as Goswin König and A. C. Bradley have estimated approximate dates of undated works of Shakespeare by studying the frequency of enjambment. Endymion by John Keats, lines 2–4: Closely related to enjambment is the technique of "broken rhyme" or "split rhyme" which involves the splitting of an individual word to allow a rhyme with one or more syllables of the split word. In English verse, broken rhyme is used exclusively in light verse, such as to form a word that rhymes with "orange", as in this example by Willard Espy, in his poem "The Unrhymable Word: Orange": The clapping game "Miss Susie", which uses the break "...

Hell / -o operator" to allude to the taboo word "Hell" replaces it with the innocuous "Hello".

Spot-breasted woodpecker

The spot-breasted woodpecker is a species of bird in the family Picidae. It is found in South America in Bolivia, Colombia, French Guiana, Peru and Venezuela and in eastern Panama of Central America, its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests and degraded former forest. The spot-breasted woodpecker was described by the French polymath Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon in 1780 in his Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux from a specimen collected in Cayenne, French Guiana; the bird was illustrated in a hand-coloured plate engraved by François-Nicolas Martinet in the Planches Enluminées D'Histoire Naturelle, produced under the supervision of Edme-Louis Daubenton to accompany Buffon's text. Neither the plate caption nor Buffon's description included a scientific name, but in 1783 the Dutch naturalist Pieter Boddaert coined the binomial name Picus punctigula in his catalogue of the Planches Enluminées. For many years, the spot-breasted woodpecker was placed in the genus Chrysoptilus, but it is now placed in the genus Colaptes, introduced by the Irish zoologist Nicholas Aylward Vigors in 1825.

The generic name is from the Ancient Greek kolaptēs meaning "chiseller". The specific epithet punctigula combines the Latin punctum meaning "spot" and gula meaning "throat". Six subspecies are recognised: C. p. ujhelyii – eastern Panama to northern Colombia C. p. striatigularis – west-central Colombia C. p. punctipectus – eastern Colombia and Venezuela C. p. zuliae – northwestern Venezuela C. p. punctigula – the Guianas C. p. guttatus – Upper Amazonia Spot-breasted woodpecker videos on the Internet Bird Collection Spot-breasted woodpecker photo gallery VIREO Photo-Medium Res.
