Thanks for the advice Baba.

I think I'll do just that.

It sounds interesting.

Yo, Baba!

Is this what you were referring to?

"CORAX'S PRINCIPLES OF LEGAL ORATORY

*The Proem or opening address creating the right mood. introducing the general outlines

*The statement of the facts in the case

*The argument or inferences made from the facts

*Tying up all the loose ends.

*The Peroration or persuasive and convincing close to the speech"

I just might be able to do that.

I tried it myself, and it turns out that the parts of the Roman Oration are sort've hard to find.  What you have found will work perfectly, but this is what I was referring to.  

I. Exordium--introduction to arouse interest
II. Narratio--statement of the facts
III. Propositio--statement of what is to be proved
IV. Argumentatio
1. Confirmatio--affirmative arguments
2. Confutatio--refutation of opposing arguments
V. Peroratio--conclusion

Good luck arguing!

Very cool, Baba. I appreciate it much.

(I'm okay at research, but I tend to get sidetracked when something else strikes my fancy.)

I'd just like to be able to play with the big boys, yanno?

You have my gratitude. Saving that now.

...hmmmm...and all this time I thought "Argumentatio" was the thin sliced cold cuts and veggies that get put on top of Arugala.

I would pounce on you if I didn't think I'd knock the wind outta ya!
