Identifying the Rhetoric of Uncertainty Reduction.
Williams, David E.
Offering a rhetorical perspective of uncertainty reduction, this paper (1) discusses uncertainty reduction theory and dramatism; (2) identifies rhetorical strategies inherent in C. W. Berger and R. J. Calabrese's theory; (3) extends predicted outcome value to influenced outcome value; and (4) argues that the goal of uncertainty reduction and influenced outcome value can be viewed as Burkean identification. Forty-six references are attached. (SR)
