About

This (beta-version) site is dedicated to the investigation of the chiastic suite of rhetorical figures in cognitive and computational terms. The chiastic suite includes at least seven figures, some of which are recognized in various ways in the catalogues, taxonomies, and handlists of rhetorical figures over the millennia of such inventories; most aren't; and many of the definitions and examples in these inventories are confused in ways we are sorting out in our work.
