A Handbook of Modern Rhetorical Terms.
Representing an effort to bring together the many words that have been added to rhetoric and composition in this century, this compilation of terms was drawn from textbooks, theoretical studies, pedagogical and curricular explorations, and practical studies. The listing is alphabetical and includes primarily twentieth century words, but it also contains several classical terms that are still widely used. Each term is followed by a definition, often in the words of its originator. A bibliographical reference is cited for the first use of the word or for its principal use in composition; this is often followed by a quotation showing the word in context. In addition, other bibliographical references that indicate any changes or extensions in meaning the word may have undergone are included. An appendix classifying the words according to subject heading and an index of names of authors cited in the definitions are provided. (FL)
