This site from MIT contains the same translation of the Rhetoric as that listed above. While it does not include the
hypertext links as the Iowa State site, it does permit a relatively quick down load of the Rhetoric you can print out.
The Perseus Project is an evolving digital library of resources for the study of the ancient world. Gregory Crane is
the Editor-in-Chief of the project, hosted and supported by Tufts University. This version of the Rhetoric includes
hypertext footnotes. This is a very useful site since you can search texts for specific uses of key rhetorical terms!
Directions for searching Perseus I recommend printing these directions for easy reference. (The example will be related to Aristotle's Rhetoric)
Once you are at the Perseus front page, look for "Tools" (just under the editor's name) and click "Tools"
At the Perseus Table of Contents, in the box, "Change selected items to:" change "Collection" to "Greek and Roman Materials"; scroll down the page to "English Index" and click it.
This will take you to a search page. Change the collection from "any collection" to "Greek and Roman materials" and BE SURE TO CLICK "ADVANCED OPTIONS"
On the next page, change collection to "Greek and Roman materials" and
from the menu below it, scroll down to Aristotle, Rhetoric and click it
so it is highlighted. Now, in the search field, type the word you are searching
for. Try "proof" (no quotation marks needed).

Rhetoric section 1418b
So much concerning proofs. (2.58)
The first line is the Bekker Index address for the section of the Rhetoric where the quote was found. The sentence below it, "So much concerning proofs" is the specific usage of the word in the section. This provides both specific examples of how a particular word or concept was used, and it places each in context.
