If I could sum up my research in one word, I’d say that I researched rhetoric. But the problem with me saying that is the word rhetoric means too many different things to a large number of people. By rhetoric, I mean a rough equivalent of influence. That certainly includes writing and speaking, but it is also much broader than that.
I am currently working on a dissertation, which provides scholars with a theory of rhetorical stylistics which is broad, inclusive, and interdisciplinary.
