The body language that Obama uses and the way that is uses words to convey a positive attidude, is full of confidence, authority and command of the whole situation. In the first couple of paragraphs he shows a lot of respect to George.W.Bush by describing his service to the country by using key adjectives, “generosity” which gives off a positive remark you could state, however it could also be interpreted in a sarcastic manner, by using a pause in the speech of “ I thank president Bush for his service to out nation” pause, this pause changes the interpretation completely, which creates a sense of tension
He uses this technique in order to keep the audience interested in his speech. This is a good technique to use to link different points together. He uses this technique for ethos. He wants to establish himself as a credible speaker, and this technique makes him someone that the audience will want to listen to. In this case ethos is established through the tone and style of the message, by the way Kennedy talks and the way in which he uses anaphora in this case.
His choices of words in this speech lean towards his ethic's being good. Also his authority in this speech is very strong he seems like he is talking with confidence even though its just a speech. The techniques in this were very simple he used lots of repletion, like talking about how if he went back in time the things he would do. He continuously repeated talking about the past. He used this as the base of the speech, which helped with the types of techniques, he was trying to do.
The photograph of him also gives the readers face with which is assistant to his words, made it easier to agree with his point of view. Nevertheless, he keeps his personal interest out of his argument, focusing instead on the facts, research finding, reports and logic of his case. This is reinforced by his use of period, such as “baseline measurement” and data collection”, which convey difficult, approach to the issue. The evidence, occurs repeatedly, stressing that he believes his planning, as soon as public policy, should be based on the facts. The issue also comforts the readers that his viewpoint is not dangerous or by personal beliefs.
The use of the word ‘forward’ also shows that Obama is prepared and is looking toward the future. The word ‘you’ is repeated throughout the speech. This naturally involves the audience on a personal level. President Obama also compliments the audience, “it moves forward because of you...” This is a very emotive statement, and again, as well as complimenting his audience, he is also engaging feelings of patriotism. This is a tactic which is used right through the text.
Since his main goal was to inspire, not educate, the use of logical appeals was not prominent in the course of his speech. However, he did use a variety of effective emotional appeals to allow his audience to feel included in his future goals as the president. Kennedy brings up the task of peace and prosperity to the word as not his own personal objective, but also for the American people. With his famous line, “Ask not what your country can do for you..ask what you can dp for your country,” (Shea54) his audience felt involved and responsible for making the place they live in better than what it is. Apart from instilling personal
But we cannot deny that people who endeavor to develop an elegant way of speaking by the use of a wide vocabulary tend to impress their listeners and audience Someone with a wide vocabulary shows us that the person is proficient with words . It aids greatly not only in providing a positive and learned impression of the speaker, but allows the speaker to communicate his or her ideas more effectively. When you have a large pool of words to choose from, it’s easier to select a word which best fits a particular situation or is most applicable for a certain audience The speaker can adjust his or her words to suit the ambiance, since a wide vocabulary always
However, while he did identify pressing issues in our country, he did identify how he would address these issues. In a speech, the arrangement of key points is an important factor for delivering a speech. Obama organized the ideas in his speech to run a general theme. His speech harkens to ideals held by our forefathers: economics, foreign relations and war. By arranging his speech in this manner, his speech became concise and cohesive.
Chief Joseph’s speech also gives us an insider look of how things were back then between the Unites States government and Native Americans. Chief Joseph’s tone throughout his speech seems to be calm but rational; at the same time I felt that he used a lot of emotion to make his point clear. His repetition and his way of thinking is very clear and just and by the end of the speech I’m intrigued and agree with his views of what freedom really is to him. In the middle of his speech he sounds a bit enraged and informs us that so called “friends” come to him and tell him that they will have their justice and that everything will be sorted out and all this talk comes out of their mouth and promises of justice turn into broken promises. What stands out to me the most about Chief Joseph is the way he delivered his logic about freedom.
