The web as a rhetorical place

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


It is a significant feature of the World Wide Web that hyperlinks operate as both semantic and navigational elements. On the one hand, links suggest meaningful associations between webpages or webpage elements, and can facilitate the tropic creation of new meaningful associations.1 These links and associations can be read critically, suggesting ways of thinking about the relations between webpages or webpage elements that the authors may or may not have intended.
