New submission from Van Ly:

The existing documentation is confusing. 

— improve wording as follows

enumerate(sequence, start=0)

Returns pairings of index into sequence[link to glossary.html#term-sequence] with the object at that index in the sequence.

— wording as found in v.2.7.5

enumerate(sequence, start=0)

Return an enumerate object. sequence must be a sequence, an iterator, or some other object which supports iteration. The next() method of the iterator returned by enumerate() returns a tuple containing a count (from start which defaults to 0) and the values obtained from iterating over sequence:
