Abstract

In order to gain more insight into the possibilities for strategic manoeuvring with praeteritio, in this paper attention will be paid to the ways in which praeteritio can be realized in discourse and to the effects the use of praeteritio may have as a result of the presentation techniques that are typically employed. The analysis of manifestations and effects will be used as a starting point for establishing how praeteritio may be instrumental in the realisation of arguers’ rhetorical aims.

Manoeuvering Strategically with Praeteritio: An Analysis of Manifestations and Effects of Pseudo-Omissions

University of Windsor

In order to gain more insight into the possibilities for strategic manoeuvring with praeteritio, in this paper attention will be paid to the ways in which praeteritio can be realized in discourse and to the effects the use of praeteritio may have as a result of the presentation techniques that are typically employed. The analysis of manifestations and effects will be used as a starting point for establishing how praeteritio may be instrumental in the realisation of arguers’ rhetorical aims.
