Title: Rhetorical Style
Subtitle: The Uses of Language in Persuasion
Written By: Jeanne Fahnestock
URL: us.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Linguistics/LiteraryStylistics/?view=usa&ci=9780199764112
Description:

A comprehensive guide to the language of argument, "Rhetorical Style" offers a
renewed appreciation of the persuasive power of the English language. Drawing
on key texts from the rhetorical tradition, as well as on newer approaches from
linguistics and literary stylistics, Fahnestock demonstrates how word choice,
sentence form, and passage construction can combine to create effective
spoken and written arguments. With examples from political speeches, non-
fiction works, and newspaper reports, "Rhetorical Style" surveys the arguer's
options at the word, sentence, interactive, and passage levels, and illustrates
the enduring usefulness of rhetorical stylistics in analyzing and constructing
arguments.
