Euphony In Paul: Sound Matters In Romans 1:18–2:29, Keith L. Yoder 2015 University of Massachusetts

Euphony In Paul: Sound Matters In Romans 1:18–2:29, Keith L. Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

This is an annotated oral reading of Romans 1:18–2:29, using the phonemic Koine pronunciation promoted by Randall Buth. The oral reading is supplemented by a detailed aural mapping of the text, laid out and formatted somewhat following "Sound Mapping the New Testament" by Lee and Scott. The features discovered here demonstrate that this text is a unified piece, with definite beginning and ending, exhibiting a style distinct from the rest of Romans. The author uses a variety of sound structures, from character level, to syllables, words, and phrases, even sorting a long list by sound. As a ...

The Resilient Machine: The Body As The Source Of The Autobiographical Self, Taryn Heon 2015 Keene State College

The Resilient Machine: The Body As The Source Of The Autobiographical Self, Taryn Heon

Strigidae

Contrary to the postmodern paradigm that would purport that selfhood unfolds out of language or discursive interactions with the external world, a rich body of evidence has evolved to show that selfhood—and the resultant narrative that is shaped from it—begins at the bodily level.


The Rhetoric Of Exile In The Preaching And Teaching Of The Anglo-Saxon Church: Glimpses Of The Cultural Ideology In Old English Homilies, Yi-chin Huang 2015 Western Michigan University

The Rhetoric Of Exile In The Preaching And Teaching Of The Anglo-Saxon Church: Glimpses Of The Cultural Ideology In Old English Homilies, Yi-Chin Huang

The Hilltop Review

Abstract.

This article explores how the early medieval vernacular homiletic discourse produced in Anglo-Saxon England strategically employs the rhetoric exile, a theme whose significance is also articulated widely in Old English poetry. As words denoting such similar ideas as exile, banishment, exclusion, casting/driving out, etc., recur significantly in the homilies of the Anglo-Saxon Church, including the homilies of Ælfric, Wulfstan, and the Blickling and Vercelli Codices, I propose an analysis of the instances in which the rhetoric about exile is used in preaching and theology in order to reveal not only the Church authors/teachers’ ability and effort to ...

When We Can’T Wait On Truth: The Nature Of Rhetoric In The Rhetoric Of Science, Nathan Crick 2014 Texas A&M

When We Can’T Wait On Truth: The Nature Of Rhetoric In The Rhetoric Of Science, Nathan Crick

Poroi

When Alan Gross published The Rhetoric of Science in 1990, he helped initiate a productive controversy concerning the place of rhetoric in science studies while arguing for the continued importance of the classical rhetorical tradition. However, in his 2006 revision, Starring the Text, Gross significantly draws back the classical emphasis while making more central the place of the American analytic philosophical tradition stemming from the foundational logical writings of W.V.O Quine. This essay interrogates this shift in Gross’s writings in order to find the working definition of rhetoric that threads throughout his work. This definition, I argue ...
