Excerpt from Model English, Vol. 1: The Development of Thought

Rhetoric or the art of composition has from the begin ning recognized three stages in writing or Speaking. After the subject has been chosen, the first work of com position is to find material which will prove and amplify the subject. This stage was known as inventio and is called here Development of Thought. After the material has been gathered, it must be arranged. This stage was called dispositio or Arrangement of Thought. Both books of the series treat adequately of the order ing of thought, a stage which requires, at best, but brief discussion. The last stage is the actual expression of the developed thought and was called elocutio, which corresponds to what is comprehensively described as Style. The second book of this course in English, the sub-title of which is The Qualities of Style, keeps in view throughout the third stage of composition.
