American Rhetoric

"Rhetorical Figures in Sound" is a collection of sound clips that illustrate figures of speech. The "News and Information" section provides links to newspapers, magazines, and news sources. The section for scholars guides the user to some full text speech and communication journals. One particularly compelling feature of the site is an area devoted to the rhetoric of 9/11, which contains over 150 active links to speeches dealing with the events on and around that date.
