Rhetorical Strategy of Cause-and-Effect Analysis
A cause and effect relationship can be best described as something that enables an event to occur. For example, “Upon seeing that his daughter’s boyfriend had rutted up the yard, Marcus was seething with rage.” Here, the cause is the boyfriend rutting up the yard and the effect is the father simmering with rage. Authors will sometimes use this strategy to speculate on possible effects of a particular cause, or maybe which event caused specific effects that we now see.
