His speaking skills, eye contact, and posture make the audience confident in his ability to improve their lives, making up for the lack of logic, and adding to his ethical and emotional appeal. The audience was so entranced with his speaking abilities and caught up in his message, they missed how the information seemed to jump around. The transitions between main points were seamless, so when only listening the first time it is not noticeable. It is the topics that are not put in a logical order and overall make him seem like he is not a credible
He has given out excellent points that lead him to his and he has used real life examples to posit the question. “ is this what a Negro American Dream looks like?” clearly, then Mr. Buckley acknowledge he could not fight the ethos of that argument and rather he focused on underestimating the credibility of Baldwin’s and not answering the debate questions.. Buckley wasted lots of time on fancy words and empty bombast before making his points. Mr. Baldwin was very relaxed, comfortable and delivers his speech slowly. When Mr. Baldwin was done speaking the entire audience stood to applaud. Since Baldwin was passionate about the topic, it leads him to win the
During his oration a fact to note is that he speaks with great joy and exhilaration and creates a patriotic feeling. One example of this is-"intimately attached …beautiful country". Ethos, pathos and logos are also present in this speech. An excellent example of when Mandela used both Ethos and Logos together is in the quote- “We deeply appreciate the role … Honorable F.W. de Klerk.”.
Bringing awareness to situations of inequality or unfairness is crucial to society and the key is being able to communicate that ethically and effectively. Hence, communication competence is the ability to effectively exchange meaning through a common system of symbols, signs or behavior (19). Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is perhaps a great example of someone who possesses communication competence. His “I have a dream” speech focused on a single positive message which was equality for all. If you watch his speech, you can observe his use of both verbal and nonverbal cues; for instance, his analogies, different vocal volume levels and even his pausing moments where everyone cheered.
Persuasive speeches can be impactful when addressed and crafted precisely. Barack Obama’s 2004 Democratic Keynote Address is an excellent example of the positive use of rhetoric and persuasive techniques. Obama incorporates ethos, logos, and pathos in his speech to deliver a meaningful speech that engaged his audience. Critics
His made references to the Angels throughout his performance as if promoting the idea of pre-destination. His grandfather’s name was Angel and the marriage clerk’s name was Angel Lopez which I thought he was kind of implying a divine destiny. Miller’s choice to tell his story and to keep his story simple really made it effective for me, and examples of this is in the way he dresses and his speech and tempo, which I discussed earlier. His story was very entertaining but also gave me a moment to reflect on the serious nature of the issue. I think the fact that it was funny allowed the story to have sort of a natural flow which helped the story come alive.
In a nutshell, King does a remarkable job of displaying his road to justice in midst of an incredible structural map that is guided through skilful use of words which create a call to action, an engaging poignant appeal that is driven through anaphoric prose and facts, and lastly a powerful biblical approach that adds an intimate steer of credibility. Overall, King helps convey that a speech doesn't simply have to be a verbal remark but it can be a powerful source of bringing light to issues and harnessing change. Even though many people might be capable of bringing this change, a person's speech can be a reflection of their abilities and a tool to engage audiences
When I first read this section, and then read the explanation of the order of letters, my jaw dropped. This was the most impressive part of the book to me. Despite all odds, with no voice, no movement besides his eyelid, he figured out a way to continue to communicate. Even more, I was awestruck that he wrote an entire book with his eye, using his own alphabet and system. I have told many people about this book and about his story, and they are all impressed when I tell them how it was written.
The imagery he used made the people feel valuable and they were ready to make a difference. The imagery put it into perspective on how negroes were actually treated and how they felt. Overall, Mr. King enforced different messages and lessons by using different speaking skills. The hand gestures, facial expressions, and the imagery he used inspired many people to take action and change what has been done. Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech has left an incredible mark on us today.
King Henry V is Shakespeare’s great heroic leader. Throughout the entire play he listens and talks with his troops in such a way that his speeches still motivate us and others. Henry being a good leader first recognized that nothing can be achieved without the people he manages and leads in other words he recognized the power of “we”, the power of union. His speeches may still be applied in today’s corporate world. Shakespeare’s Henry’s speeches are masterpieces of communication between a leader and his subordinates.
