Agrostis

 

a genus of perennial and, less commonly, annual grasses of the family Gramineae. The small, one-flowered spike-lets are gathered in loose panicles. There are approximately 200 species, distributed in the temperate and cold belts, mainly in the northern hemisphere in the mountains of tropical regions. The USSR has more than 30 species, growing mainly in the forest zone. The plants grow in meadows (often in large clusters), in glades, amid thickets, and along bodies of water.

The genus includes many forage grasses. The species A. stolonifera (formerly A. alba) and A. gigantea, which are found along wet meadows, are used for pasture and silage. Both species are grown in grass mixtures for lowland meadows. Other forage grasses include the dog bent (A. canina), which grows in the European USSR; the Siberian species A. clavata and A. trinii; and the Caucasian species A. planifolia. The Rhode Island bent (A. tenius; formerly A. capillaris) is often found in dry meadows but is rarely eaten by livestock. A number of species, including the dog bent and the Rhode Island bent, are grown for lawns. A. alpina, the cloud bent (A. nebulosa), and A. rupestris are ornamentals.

Some-se aos apontamentos elucidativos de Fiorin a contribuicao de Maingueneau, que, quanto a imitacao que o recurso de estilizacao se propoe a realizar numa relacao dialogica, pode se servir de duas estrategias opostas de abordagem entre os textos: a captacao e a subversao.
O que Fiorin denomina de "justa medida" é, nesse universo relacional, o termo eufórico (positivo).
Se retomarmos as proposições de Fiorin sobre a aspectualização do ator, agora à luz da retórica aristotélica, parece possível concluir que as qualificações da performance de um sujeito feitas por um observador podem ser consideradas como um resultado direto da construção discursiva do seu éthos.
Tratase aqui de um comportamento baseado na phrónesis, nos termos descritos por Aristóteles, e de uma postura orientada rumo à insuficiência, nos termos de Fiorin.
