Subject:        Nov 11 1996, Eric Armstrong, Rhetorical Resources

In the process of doing my paper on the aspect of the Idiolect in two of
Shakespear's plays, or the angle of the idiolect, rather, (which is tricky, as
I myself am of the idiolet classification for taking this on perhaps) I have
come across reading that might be of interest to you Eric, in the text of a
book by S.S. Hussey.  This book, "The literary language of Shakespeare" Longman
House, Publishers, Burnt Mill, UK, 1925, discusses to some extent, the language
of rhetoric as is "meant the art of persuasion" as Shakes- pear used it and
discusses rhetoric also from its sources in Roman literature, namely, the works
of Cicero.   I can't find, however, the proper spelling or use of that
particular word you were looking for.

I hope this will be of interest to you.
