Discourse Communities--Local and Global.
Killingsworth, M. Jimmie
Rhetoric Review, v11 n1 p110-22 Fall 1992
Argues that rhetorical theory needs to keep alive competing concepts of discourse communities, so that alternatives exist in the description and analysis of discourse practices. Proposes distinguishing between two kinds of discourse communities--the local and the global--so that rhetorical analysis can achieve the necessary critical edge, demarcating both a communitarian and a liberal concept of discourse communities.
