9781330529188: Model English the Qualities of Style, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Model English the Qualities of Style, Vol. 2

Teachers of speaking and writing have always distinguished three stages in the art of composition. The first is invention (inventio), the finding of thoughts to establish or amplify the truth of a statement. The second is the arrangement of the thoughts (dispositio), and the third (elocutio) treats the fitting expression of the thoughts.

The third stage, described by the word style, is the subject of Model English, Book II. Invention is the chief topic of Book I, better known under its former title, Imitation and Analysis. Arrangement is adequately treated in both books. The two books embody a complete and practical presentation of the art of composition for secondary schools.

Model English, as its name implies, teaches composition, in the way every art must be taught, by the following of master-models. Definitions are given in the form of directions, and technical terms are kept subordinate. Definitions and terms have their legitimate use, but to commit them to memory does not make writers or speakers. (See appendix, Directions for Teachers.) The speaker or writer is made by speaking and writing, and though each one should furnish his own thoughts, he need not, and for the most part cannot, devise new words or new forms of sentences and paragraphs. For these he must go to the best authors, avoiding individual mannerisms and adopting what is standard in English.
