This chapter reads the asymmetrical chiasmus between the ‘rhetorization of grammar’ and the ‘grammatization of rhetoric’ that structures the argument of de Man's ‘Semiology and Rhetoric’. It demonstrates that a certain materialism can be drawn out of a text putatively only about linguistic structures.

Keywords:   rhetoric, grammar, Semiology and Rhetoric, materialism
