4. SUPERSPEECH AND ITS LINGUAL VALUES, RHETORICAL FIGURES

Superspeech is metalingual phenomenon. Its metalinguistic nature produces useful lingual values. Whereas its rhetorical and psychological label clearly indicate the intentional or unintentional discapabilities. Superspeech is comprehensive chatter, long, excessive and exaggerated speech, with involuntary forms and unique postive side-effects of language (Newmeyer, 1996; Segalowitz 2001). In concept of lingual vocation, superspeech is intentional rhetoric capability, superb lingual practice unique ability to use words, phrases, or a speech in such a way to prevail an opponent speaker. Subject is a speaker, accomplice, or interlocutor with formal or informal priority in the group. The speaker who talks a lot, is using the same devices as the orator with limited period of time (Utsumi, 2006). Directional rhetorics is trying to establish itself as the valuable discourse. Therefore, time is intensive metalinguistics with the applied style of profitable devices (Klujeff, 2005). Speaker will not talk all the time, but will have magnetic and comprehensive speech, will use right words, be opened, speaking what others would speak but speaking for itself. Superspeaker talks all the time, intuitively captures the reality, speaks before something is created, further he creates by speech. Elements of this can be read in the vernacular and rhetorical devices:
(1) “of course i will not tell that [then telling it!” obivous hypercolloqium;
(2) “surely you know that”, “i know what you’re gonna say”, “we certainly want to”, the imposition of intent;
(3) interruption of speech of interlocutor, jumping in someone’s speech, almastinephrax, stinephrax,
(4) taking the words out of someone’s mouth, speaking of what the interlocutor wanted to say, device verba ex ore, pestering by expression, pyrhazoephraxis,
(5) thinking aloud, decide aloud, apophasíseidynata,
(6) interference of speak by speaking, paremvolia, uelut loqui,
(7) articulating science or mood, figure of diathesis,
(8) or the word that floats in the air, on which everyone is thinking, is about to be imposed, a word which came about during the dialogue, fteroúgisma, verbum volitans,
(9) talk of thoughts instead of talk of words, in the promotion and prevention of speech, indirect device, does not speak directly by words, do not articulate the intention, disputatio cognitationum, syzitisitonskepseon,
(10) deliberate speech, speech which is not the purpose of the speech, delibrate talk, and talk in order to talk, deliberata sermonis,
(11) protheseos (ek protheseos thóryvo), override the voice, apophasis,
(12) wherein the speaker or writer brings up a subject by either denying it, or denying that it should be brought up, anapodonton,
(13) it is a figure of speech or discourse that is an incomplete sentence, parrhesia,
(14) speak in such a way that others wish to speak, not to oppose than to join the conversation, epithymonexphrasos, exhortation, exoptamus.
Superspeech as wordiness, long-windedness, grandiloquence, garrulousness, chattiness, glibness, is formal expression of talkativeness, purposeful and stylish speech within limited budget of time and colloquial words. Speech is imposed but with intent purpose and metalingistical discourse (Gumbert, 1993). Positioned within linear budget and its transcending function. Its rational limitations are rather projected to transcendental style of rhetorics, or funds of noncolloquial word and expressions, as forms and devices. Ranks of words, and basic modalities of lingual logic are exposed to lingual metalogic. Metaspeech is formulated in flosculas as a whole, that are playful with modes of formal logic. Its ability to change modes, shows that it is not something within mode, but rather transcendent to it, as creation to the object, or insight to the phenomenon. Further words are active realities, they correspondent to realities, all words are ontologies, phaenomenon in productione, things that produce things. So all subjects are political onthologies, onthologies that are not normative, but producible, capable of creating realities, that are not only new words but also colloquiums. Treating subjects and object as words in logic, and corresponding words to the realities, would neglect possibility of metalinguistics, that the the things (in this case the object) is not formal ontology, in its projection to the words and linear logic, but original ontology with transcendental function.
Wordiness of superspeech is proven by phrases in given modalities, devices that stand always contrary to the expected creating positive lingual effect by producing different modalities of reception or articulating modalities of speech, to inflexion or motivation. That is position of superspeech, its possibility to be expressed in rhetorical devices, in articulation that changes reality, that is in original language of literal creativity.
