I have a sentence that is constructed the same as this one:
She bought food for a black cat, a white horse, a red dog, and a green frog.
However, I feel the comma does not give enough pause for what I want to convey. Instead of a series for which the comma is used, I would like more separation between each item when the list is read aloud. That is, each item is more important on its own than in the series.
So I wrote this instead:
She bought food for a black cat, for a white horse, for a red dog, and for a green frog.
I use for (from the conjunction mnemonic FANBOYS) in addition to the comma to create the pause I want. Is this so incorrect? Should I just stick with the commas, or is there a better way to represent a longer pause?
