Eubanks, Philip
College Composition and Communication, v53 n1 p92-118 Sep 2001
Considers how the Conduit Metaphor of language and communication has been roundly condemned by language scholars, including scholars in rhetoric and composition. Notes that it is time to reevaluate its importance and value. Notes that the Conduit Metaphor combines with the metaphor Language Is Power to form a prudentially applied ethical measure of discourses, genres, and texts. (SG)
