glVertexAttribPointer - understanding the size attribute

after reading several OpenGL documentations I understand that glVertexAttribPointer takes a numeral value between 1 and 4 for its second parameter (size) as information how many vertices are taken into consideration to render a single triangle. But I do not understand how to use other then three vertices for a triangle. Also trying different values and seeing the result doesn't help me.
What exactly does this do and what is it used for?

e.g. if size is 3, and type is GL_FLOAT, then the corresponding C/C++ type is float and the GLSL type is vec3.

You can additional information besides the position of a vertex.
