Lindquist, Julie
College Composition and Communication, v51 n2 p225-47 Dec 1999
Suggests that an examination of rhetorical practices at the local bar is instructive: (1) the barroom is predictably different from the university writing classroom; and (2) the barroom is surprisingly similar to the university writing classroom. Shows that the rhetoric that is valued most highly in today's writing classroom operates differently as currency in the working-class institution of the barroom. (SC)
