It is an over theorised term used to describe a very old fashioned art movement.
I occured from around 1850 to 1950. Impressionism, cubism, fauvism, and realism are examples of modernism.
Modernism was replaced by postmodernism - Which one can not even talk about in a dictionary.
I still don't understand what exactly "modernism" means - it happened over a hundred years ago.

Adding extra syllables to words to make them longer. Most commonly used by pop singers.
Why do pop stars have to syllabify so much.
Damn, Alicia Keys syllabifies alot.
eg:
"I Love you ba-aby" or,
"I lo-o-o-o-ove you" etc. etc.
