Word list

Postby Crozier » Fri Mar 28, 2014 3:04 pm

What is the correct term for a list of words on a subject where one word is a different part of speech from the others e g
Creative
Responsive
Proactive
Partners
Focused

I find this thing frequently particularly in corporate values statements.

Thanks

I am not aware of any special term.

'Confusing' would probably be the most appropriate description!
