In this project, which will occupy us for a few weeks, we'll be looking at a number of web pages on two different websites to see how the rhetors manage arguments. In particular, we'll be keeping an eye on how the sites use presentational enthymemes (L&W pp 54ff), and practical reasoning overall. But, more broadly, we're here to see what we can see: What's interesting in how arguments operate or are managed in websites, and more generally in hypertext.

Review your notes and see what you can say.
