The American Dialect Society has released its Words of the Year list–words that “reflect the concerns and preoccupations of the year gone by.” The term “blog” made the list for 2002, but the phrase “weapons of mass destruction” was chosen as the top term. In the early running for next year, I like: astroturfing.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
