One of the main goals of the speech was to bring a sense of nationalism into the colonists through fear of what would happen if the British had control of America.

The changing in the tone of his voice helped emphasize words of importance and helped keep the audience interested. I feel that the quality of President Reagan's voice was great because he changed his tone throughout the speech to emphasize topics and words of importance which also helped keep the audience listening. I think that Reagan used very little movement throughout his speech, but his did maintain eye contact and he ensured moving from looking to one side to the other to include the audience. I feel that the movement was appropriate for the speech because the president wanted the speech to inform and the movement helped include the whole audience. References Reagan, R. (1983, March).
If the speaker is your President, it makes it a lot easier for you to trust the speaker. FDR knew that if the audience gained trust in him, that they would be able to listen to him and believe him now. Not only does FDR start out his speech laying out his credibility, but he ends it letting the audience know who 's in charge. Towards the end of his speech, FDR states "As Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense." In the beginning of his speech, he was letting the crowd know of his credibility, but here he is emphasizing that he is now in charge.
Gallant heroes must not back down from a challenge and an audacious hero will take risks to help commoners. Courageous heroes are brave because they are fearless and courageous heros also help out the public. According to Sam Adams, a hero of the revolutionary war once said “ The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” By saying this he showed he had respect for the american citizens and their beleifs. Sam was one of the most courageous heros because he was the first person to address the Boston Massacre, the day after the massacre happened! Samuel Adams is courageous because his respectful political views and he was well respected for his care for the american people, and he was the first to address the boston massacre.
Brutus’ funeral speech was more persuasive towards the Romans because he was very formal , which was used to join the Roman people together to help Brutus prove Caesar was dead. During his speech, Brutus calls Caesar an “ambitious” man. As Brutus addresses Caesar as ambitious it makes the crowd think of him as selfish. On the other hand, Antony’s speech was disrespectful and more personal. Conflicting Brutus’ speech, Antony starts his speech with “Friends, Romans, countrymen…”, which makes the crowd want to listen to what he has to say, as he uses the word friends.
The current president of the United States of America, Barack Obama, is also recognized for his public speaking skills. His glittering generality ‘Yes we can!’ is catchy, attractive, and appealing. In 1946, George Orwell stated: "In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defence of the indefensible." In his essay 'Politics and the English Language ' he elaborates upon this statement by acclaiming that politicians purposely make use of vague and inexact words in order to deceive their audience. The politicians in question do so because using imprecise words and phrases allows people to interpret what the speaker is saying as cruel or as pleasant as they wish to.
Barack Obama’s win for President in 2009 was a historical moment for the United States. His inaugural speech was much anticipated, because this was going to set the tone for his presidency. His speech told the American people that improving the economy is one of his priorities, but there were also other areas he would like to improve like healthcare and the education system. This was a speech that was meant to persuade the American public to take action for them to rise as a nation again, and for them to put their trust into him. His message addressed a couple of specific points like his gratefulness to the American people, the different crises America is facing, how America will overcome these crises, replying to his cynics, addressing the world, and then he reminded America again to be brave like they’ve always been to overcome the hard times (5 Speechwriting Lessons from Obama's Inaugural Speech, (n.d.).
4. Donald Trump 's specific language Donald Trump has mastered the power of language to influence audience like no other politician. All his speeches are emotionally-charged.

The film starts with a glance of a microphone, and the microphone was usually there when something happened. What is interesting to me is that Albert always used the microphone to reach out to his people, even though he was frighten of the people behind it. However, when he overcame his fear of microphones, he got the courage to greet the people from his balcony. I think the King’s speech towards the end of the film is of such importance to the British because it represented a new era, where the impossible became possible. When Albert managed change himself for the better, it gave people optimism that he therefore could make a great change for his country.

Weems receives the credit for the cherry tree myth that so many of us know to this very day and use this to give an exaggerated reason for Washington 's honesty. He used this wild story to gain any small amount of wealth he could grab from the unsuspecting people of this time. He weaved stories to teach lessons on behalf of Washington to further his point that he was such a great leader. President Abraham Lincoln admitted to reading the stories as a young boy to help shape him into the great president he had later become. By making up these stories to heighten Washington’s stature, people admired and perceived him as a religious man, even though there is no evidence to support that he was a devout Christian.
