I am listing some features for a software system and in one of the list items, I wrote:

First: the list of properties, which are parameters required by the framework.

Now, I want to list these parameters, I can't use such as, because I want to list all of them and such as indicates some of them, and I can't use which are because I already used which. So, what is the correct word here?

I want to say something like:

First: the list of properties, which are parameters required by the framework. and they are ...

I think can't use and directly after the ellipses,
which is what I know in grammar, but maybe I am wrong?

  • You can use "the list of properties, which are A, B, C, D, and E" (where "parameters required by the framework" is A). You can also simply use a colon: "First, the list of properties: A, B, C, D, and E". – Damkerng T. Sep 12 '15 at 11:58

When you can't find a good coordinating conjunction, try a semi-colon:

First: the list of properties, which are parameters required by the framework; these are A, B, C, and D.
