  • Rhetoric in Tooth and Clawby Debra Hawhee

    University of Chicago Press 2016; US$ 45.00

    We tend to think of rhetoric as a solely human art. After all, only humans can use language artfully to make a point, the very definition of rhetoric. Yet when you look at ancient and early modern treatises on rhetoric, what you find is surprising: they?re crawling with animals. With Rhetoric in Tooth and Claw , Debra Hawhee explores this unexpected... more...

  • A Formal Approach to Discourse Anaphoraby Bonnie Lynn Webber

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 140.00

    First published in 1979, this book starts from the perspective that dealing with anaphoric language can be decomposed into two complementary tasks: 1. identifying what a text potentially makes available for anaphoric reference and 2. constraining the candidate set of a given anaphoric expression down to one possible choice. The author argues there... more...
