Edward Wheeler Scripture, Phonetician

  • John W. Black
Part of the Studies in Applied Psycholinguistics book series (SAP)


The writer is tempted to say that he is naming a new rhetorical device, “successive augumentation,” and is illustrating it in this chapter. Scripture ended his autobiography (1936) with the cryptic sentences:

I notice a paucity of personal details in my account. I have forgotten most of them and I am not interested in the rest; I do not think the reader would be interested either. In order to be dated and placed I have to state that I was born in 1864 in a village in New Hampshire, U.S.A. (p. 261)
