Epexegesis (ep-ex-e-ge’-sis): When one interprets what one has just said. A kind of redefinition or self-interpretation (often signaled by constructions such as “that is to say…”).
This is going to be a lot more difficult than we expected–that is to say, we’re going to have to outsource at least six key functions in order to get the job done.
Post your own epexegesis on the “Comments” page!
