Abstract

"Sourcebook on Rhetoric is a glossary of key terms and concepts designed to introduce readers to the language of contemporary rhetorical studies. Author James Jasinski opens the volume with an introductory essay on the definitional ambiguities of the term rhetoric itself. He then presents a broad range of pivotal terms from "accent" to "vernacular", defining the major issues, themes and arguments of contemporary rhetoric."--BOOK JACKET.
