Within this commercial, logos was not very prevalent. I chose a commercial about dog food and they didn’t mention the dog food until the end. Through the entire advertisement, if focused on the dog and his owner. In the end, you finally got to see the paw print logo appears as well as the company name, IAMS. The director makes an interesting decision by having the commercial not be focused on the logos.
The copy strategically placed next to the dog’s face is used to guide the viewer’s eye to the next important element, the message “Help Us Help Them” (ASPCA). Likewise, the words “Help Us Help Them” (ASPCA) assist in delivering and clarifying the message of the visual to the audience. Other elements in the photograph, serve to direct the viewer to the next element of importance, such as the chain that serves as a directional line to guide the eye to the words “Donate Today” (ASPCA). These words set in white are intentionally placed on an orange hue background causing them to stand out creating contrast, urging the audience to make a donation. Another element used to support the ad’s message is the
Family, friends, and possessions pressure individuals through the imposition of values that contribute to identity; we are told that we obtain our qualities simply by inheritance and association. The environment one chooses to surround themselves reflects similar learned behaviors and thought processes. Deviating from the norm is often contemptible, but natural, according to author Jon Krakauer. Realizing that he did not want to become a carbon copy of his parents and environment, Christopher McCandless wandered the American West for two years, as a nomad, to reject society as he knows it―his family, friends, and possessions. He burns his money, abandons his car, and cuts all ties with his family on an identity crisis that would lead to his death in the inhospitable Alaskan tundra. These actions, taken alone, allows critics to characterize him as bizarre, irrational, and even suicidal. Furthermore, this characterization dissociates him from his own humanity, as the consensus was that McCandless must have been out of his right mind. To combat this impression, Jon Krakauer wrote Into the Wild to humanize McCandless in order to justify McCandless’s choices in spite of the fact that they lead to his death.
In the essay, Mark Twain is saying that humans are the lowest of animals. Instead of evolving from lower species, human have descended from higher ones. “In order to determine the difference between an anaconda and an earl (if any) I caused seven young calves to be turned into the anaconda’s cage. The grateful reptile immediately crushed one of them and swallowed it, then lay back satisfied. It showed no further interest in the calves, and no disposition to harm them… The fact stood proven that the difference between an earl and an anaconda is that the earl is cruel and the anaconda isn’t….” (Twain 2). This is one example Twain uses to explain to the reader one of the reasons why he believes man is the lowest of animals. This example tells
Kathryn Stockett, the author of The Help uses imagery to help the reader better comprehend the meaning of the passage. As the reader reads along in the passage reading about little Miss Skeeter, “Munching on peanuts, sorting through the pieces spread out on the table, a storm [raging] outside (Stockett 77). Through this imagery that the author provides the reader is instantly transformed into the world of little Miss Skeeter as she is sitting down by Constantine on a dark stormy night doing a puzzle. The reader can hear the crunch of the peanuts and smell the rain coming from outside as they read the passage. Stockett also uses diction to contribute to the imagery of the passage. Words like “ebony” and “frizzy” give life to the characters
Rhetorical Analysis Essay “Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength” (G.D. Anderson). Emily Shire attempts to convince the audience that feminism is a misunderstood topic by using a concerned and determined tone, by appealing to the reader’s sense of logos, and by using rhetorical explanation.

The advertisement says, “THE ONLY THING THAT SHOULD GET BETWEEN A HUNTER AND HIS MEAT IS BREAD.” This is written in a font like what you would commonly find on signs that mark public hunting land, which makes it recognizable to just about any hunter. All of the text, with the exception of the Arby’s logo, is capitalized, which is how text usually appears on these signs. Most of the text is relatively small, but there are some words that stand out that really grab your attention. These words are A HUNTER and MEAT, which makes sense in this ad because all hunters like meat.
First, ethos, pathos, and logos are different ways used to convince the audience or the consumer. In this ad, the company Gatorade use the method ethos, which is using a professional or celebrity.

Also, to send a message to customers that Apple is not the same as any company that sells electronics and that’s a good reason to buy electronics from Apple.
In this passage, Charlotte Perkins Gilman highlights the theme that women must use their intellect or go mad through the use of literary qualities and writing styles. Gilman also uses the use of capital letters to portray the decline in the narrators’ sanity. This shows the decline in the sanity of a person because the words in all-caps is shown as abrupt, loud remarks. Gilman uses this method multiple times in her short story and this method was used twice in this passage. When the narrator wrote, “LOOKING AT THE PAPER!”, the major decline in her mental health was shown. Before this remark, the narrator only would put one to two words maximum in all capital letters. This remark has the total of four words which if a big jump from one
Persuasion makes it’s way into almost every communication event I can think of. Either I’m trying to persuade someone or they are trying to persuade me. My dad was a connoisseur in the art of rhetoric. I observed him manipulate the english language to his benefit on many occasions. He would talk people into buying vehicles, electronics, and just about anything he could make a profit on, he would talk people into giving him discounts in stores and restaurants, it was amazing to watch him, however seeing him persuade so many others made me very cautious to being persuaded. Nonetheless, recently I found myself in a situation where I was the persuadee and the persuader, a local dog breeder, created such emotion within his argument that I found
In the photograph, the woman is closing her eyes and smiling with her pointing finger touching the lower lip. The caption signifies a sign of happiness within reality and relaxed mood. Notably, there is a shadow of her right hand on the chest that shows the photograph is real. The woman in the ad has a silver ring, and the hand is in the middle of the photograph that is the focal center of the viewers. A close look at the photo shows the woman is tilting to the right, which is a body language implying submission.
