Abstract

The ongoing study of Shenoute’s specific rhetoricity requires a syntagmatical analysis of contrasting marked and unmarked macrosyntactic elements.

These issues include: 1) some major rhetorical features of Shenoute’s writing; 2) evalutation of Shenounte’s style; 3) consideration of “Broad Rhetoric;” 4) “weirdness” in the text, and high-level paradigmatic as rhetorical signals.
