Rhetorical Relations

Rhetorical relations (Simmons, Alterman) are a kind of higher-level grammar to describe larger units of text. Expository text, such as might be found in an encyclopedia, often has a high-level structure such as:

  1. Give a related concept.

  2. Give differentia of the concept being described.

  3. Give an example.
