A word mechanic I am not. I try to be a tree mechanic.
To me the literati style is the style that embraces all styles and the only rule of this style is that there are no rules and no real guidelines either.
A literati bonsai should tell a tree story with only a few "brush strokes"
A trunk, branch and a live leaf. In winter the leaf is not necessary with a decidious tree.

There are many ways in which to classify bonsai. Yoshimura was the first to sit down and organize the styles logically, and ever since most people have just accepted his classification system. I have built on my teacher's system:

One group is by trunk design which includes formal upright style. There is only formal upright trunk design, straight.

Another group is by "feeling" which includes three different "styles" of bonsai: Literati, Windswept and Broom. There is no one form of these three styles. But, there are formal upright, informal upright literati, slanting, cascade, group plantings, rock plantings etc. in the literati feeling.

Some are getting these confused. The formal upright ONLY describes the trunk shape/line. Literati describes the feeling and one can have ANY style with the literati feeling.

Exposed roots are another grouping by focal point. Dead wood is another group of the focal point. Shohin bonsai is by size.

Therefore one can have a cascade style (by trunk design), exposed root (by focal point), with deadwood (by focal point), literati style bonsai. Each of these terms describes something different. Unfortunately most people do not understand these terms and try to collectively "lump" them together.

Just my thoughts this morning...
