Entry: enjambment (n.)

In context: "This segues into an entr'acte, with continent squeezed in for world in 'It's a Small World After All,' which enjambment doesn't do the rhythm section of doo-wopping cabinet girls a bit of good, but does usher in the start of a whole new era."

Definition: The continuation of a sentence beyond the second line of a couplet. Now also applied less restrictedly to the carrying over of a sentence from one line to the next.

Other: Interesting!
