 for enumerated type
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  enumerated type
  
      (Or "enumeration") A type which includes in
     its definition an exhaustive list of possible values for
     variables of that type.  Common examples include Boolean,
     which takes values from the list [true, false], and
     day-of-week which takes values [Sunday, Monday, Tuesday,
     Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday].  Enumerated types are
     a feature of strongly typed languages, including C and
     Ada.
  
     Characters, (fixed-size) integers and even floating-point
     types could be (but are not usually) considered to be (large)
     enumerated types.
