This site is all about coinkydinks. Every day someone comments on something I was just doing, reading, listening to. I was just reading Dinosaur Comics.

"To state or set forth precisely or systematically" I don't see where slow comes in, think the focus is more on the making it clear

The only one of those which is close enough to enunciate is articulate, which itself is 4 syllables. If fact, to say enunciate correctly, you have to enunciate.
Enounce? Speak clearly? Pronounce? Articulate? Sound it out?If those are all still too much effort, might I suggest... say? Good communication takes (a little) effort. :-D
They mean different things. Enunciate means to say things clear and slowly. Like saying "ee-none-cee-ate". State doesn't imply the clarity and slow speed than enunciate does.
I just wanna STATE for the record..:D
