==A definition of rhetoric==
A modest but pragmatic, easy-to-hang-onto definition of rhetoric from Stoner and Perkins:

The art and science of creating and analyzing "messages that rely on verbal and nonverbal symbols that more or less intentionally influence social attitudes, values, beliefs, and actions." (6)

== Elements of the rhetorical situation in detail ==
- immediate occasion
- exigence
- issue
- types of discourse that can be used to address the situation
- judicial - to make judgements on the past
- deliberative - to consider for the future
- epideictic - to praise or blame, celebrate, in the present
- forum and genre in that forum
- historical and cultural context in which the immediate occasion exists
- presuppositions are part of this cultural context that are (more or less) shared by rhetor and listener

== Notes==
A meme is not a single artifact but a group of artifacts with shared characteristics of imitation. We are interested in memes as rhetorical artifacts, created in response to a common, shared rhetorical situation that is capped by the meme. p 39

- [[ | Characteristics of Memes]]
- ShifmansMemeticDimensions

Shifman defines memes and details the shared characteristics - memetic dimensions - she sees operating in them. Then presents an example of how to roughly analyze how those shared characteristics are spread by imitation. Her terms of analysis

- content
- form
- stance
- participation structures
- keying
- communicative function

==== Tips and Suggestions ====
- The Overwrite warning. If you save a page, then use the back button rather than double-clicking to get back to editing, you might get an Overwrite warning in red. That only means the wiki is confused. Select all the text you're editing, copy it, then Cancel the save. After you save, see if the version is complete. It usually is. But if not, double-click to edit the page, select everything, then paste the version you have on the clipboard into the wiki and save.
- Use RecentlyCommented at the top of the page to check on FAQs.
