Oral Tradition and the Internet

This chapter presents further terminologies unique to the Pathways Project book and website, and furthermore discusses options for how the contents of both media can be read. For both modes of presentation, the chapter introduces an extended version of web-speak to describe words, pathways, and other phenomena across the three agoras. Thus oral words will be oWords, electronic pathways will be ePathways, textual agoraphobia will be tAgoraphobia, and so forth. In addition, this chapter provides overviews of the Pathways Project wiki and homepage, as well as that of the succeeding chapters of this book. Finally, it discusses the limitations of the book—the “brick-and-mortar” aspect of the Pathways Project—as well as a few additional reminders for proper navigation of the tAgora.

Keywords:   textual agoraphobia, wiki, Pathways Project, electronic pathways, electronic pathways, website, homology, key terminology, web-speak
