This makes auxesis of a single word into the opposite of meiosis, and other theorists, Peacham for example, use it thus ("when we use a greater word for a lesse, or when the word 26 AUXESIS is greater than the thing is in deede"). This sense seems closest to Aristotle's original but general use of the term.

Observing this distinction, however, we can call a climactic series a climax only when the terms are linked (see example at Climax).
