Throughout the document, when it says:

         alternation    =  concatenation
                           *(*c-wsp "/" *c-wsp concatenation)

         concatenation  =  repetition *(1*c-wsp repetition)

         repetition     =  [repeat] element

         repeat         =  1*DIGIT / (*DIGIT "*" *DIGIT)

         element        =  rulename / group / option /
                           char-val / num-val / prose-val

         group          =  "(" *c-wsp alternation *c-wsp ")"

         option         =  "[" *c-wsp alternation *c-wsp "]"

Notes:

Section 4. (ABNF Definition of ABNF) contains at least 2 recursions.
Recursions are not explicitly mentioned in the document, which may be confusing.
