Cession: losing (or at least seeming to lose) to win.

English 201, Assignment 1 Notes

  1. concession:  losing (or at least seeming to lose) to win
  • syncrisis:  reframing, renaming (“So I should lower my standards when dating?”  “Not lower, deepen.”)
  • commonplace:  a universally (or at least somewhat) recognized reference point; a point of shared attitude or at least familiarity; best example—pop culture references
  • amplification (or dirimens copulation, “joining by interrupting”):  “Not only…but also”; “—and it can also…” (interrupting either yourself or another person)
  • seduction:  descriptively embedding the audience/listener in order to lead to a concession; most advertising/marketing does this
  • chiasmus:  a rhetorical mirror image; a well-known Malcolm X quote is a good example—“We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock.  Plymouth Rock landed on us.”
  • the fundamental differences between arguing and fighting (or being “eristic”):  to argue is trying to persuade; to fight is trying to win
  • prolepsis:  conceding in advance (to cut out as much of the argument middle man as possible)—“I’ll grant you…”; “I know…but…”
  • Cicero’s three goals of persuasion:
  • STIMULATE your audience’s emotions.  (mood)
  • CHANGE your audience’s opinion.  (mind)
  • GET your audience to act.  (desire)
  1. the “humblebrag”:  essentially—admitting a mistake, usually something small, made while doing something noble, hardworking, or well-meaning; or made in the midst of a high/prestigious position
