what are the effects of these techniques?
Asyndetic listing creates a perpetual flurry of events happening often to overwhelm the reader; but it honestly depends on the context of its use

what are the effects of these techniques?
Syndetic listing - creates an accumulation of things, for example:
I need to get eggs and cheese and milk.
This makes it seem like there is a large amount of items i need to get

Asyndetic listing - speeds up the pace of the writing, depending on the desired effect. For example: I looked, left, right, forwards. This creates a fast pace to mimick the worried tone
