Earning One's Inheritance: Rhetorical Criticism, Everyday Talk, and the Analysis of Public Discourse.
McCormick, Samuel
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v89 n2 p109-31 May 2003
Analyzes a transcribed speech in which an African American community member engaged a panel of school board officials on the topic of racial stereotypes in an elementary school science experiment. Concludes that the force of public discourse may reside less in a speaker's ability to persuade an audience than in an audience's willingness to recycle and revise figural aspects of a speaker's discourse in their everyday talk.
