RECOUNT To retell events for the purpose of informing or entertaining. Events are usually arranged in a temporal sequence. Interpersonal meanings occur scattered throughout a text, if they are there at all. Recounts are used in most subjects to show memory of a series of events as in accounts of a Science excursion, everyday life in another time or culture. Personal letters to friends are often recounts of experience.
