Viz (also "viz.", with a period) and videlicet are adverbs used today as synonyms of "namely, precisely, that is to say". Videlicet is Latin for "one may see; clearly, evidently", while viz is a corrupted abbreviation of the former. They introduce a specification or a more detailed description of something stated before; often, as with a syntactical-descriptive colon, this is a list. Though both forms survive in many modern languages, viz is far more common in English than videlicet. Viz is traditionally read aloud as "namely" or "to wit", not phonetically as [viz]. In writing, it is now usually followed by an unnecessary period .
