He wants to be there helping them throuhg these rou... ... middle of paper ... ...ose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty." He was hoping to get the support of the nation. That the people in the audience were listening to him and agreed with what he had to say. The crowd cheered and applauded for him which usually means that they agree, so I would say that JFK got the response he was looking for. The people agreed with him.
One of the most influential speeches ever given on the earth was given on a potiumat the Lincoln Momorial in Washington D.C on August 28th 1963. The great speech was given by Martin Luther King Jr. who deciatied his time on earth to prove that all people are equal. Martin Luther used different parts of the English language to enhance the meaning of his speech and bring out the details. The different rhetorical devices, allusions to historic documents, and metaphors seemed to have brought about the emotions that King was trying to arouse in his listeners. This helped him influence his listeners towards wanting equality for all and changing what was happening in the present so they didn't repeat things in the past .
Kennedy relies on history ("Our ancient heritage") and God ("in the trumpet summons") and on patriotism ("graves of young Americans") and on bravery ("I do not shrink from this responsibility") to carry his message against "the common enemies of man: "tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself". Evoking excitement and fear caused many to be proactive out of worry that their laziness may be counterproductive to the nation. This address not only manipulated the audience by evoking certain emotions, but equally important was the ability for the Inaugural Address to linger in the minds of the audience. For years to come, we will still remember the words and ideas of Kennedy simply because of his mastery of rhetoric.
Article #1 Ferdinand Marcos was born on September 11, 1917 in Sarrat, Philippines. Ferdinand was a great student and studied law at the University of the Philippines. The Philippines is a country with almost 97 million people and is located on the south eastern border of Asia. Before Marco’s presidency, he was involved in other aspects of government. During World War II he served as an officer for the Philippines and was captured by the Japanese but later escaped.
He constantly pulls on the heartstrings of the audience by persuading them to choose a truce and freedom over violence. When listeners heard the tranquil life they could live if they followed the points, many of them eagerly agreed with Wilson. When he explained why he entered the war, he said that war “touched us to the quick” (Wilson) because the United States simply could not move on without joining in and correcting the issue. This use of language appeals to the emotions by showing America’s sensitivity and passion towards righteousness. Later, he continues to establish his nation’s morals by declaring “We stand together until the end” (Wilson).
Apart from infusing a sense of obligation in the crowd, Kennedy’s greatest element in his speech was the aptitude to arouse a feeling of esteem in the audience. Kennedy constantly uses phrases about freedom and sovereignty to remind the people they still are. “The heirs of that first revolution.” This dialect portrays America as a powerful and patriarch republic that possesses greater philanthropy of all the other nations around the world. Even though much of the address is fervent in tone, Kennedy devotes a large section of his topic to outline his ethos to all inhabitants of the world. JFK introduced the use of ethos at the inception of his address.
Stressing words like dare and every draws the audience in with another dynamic he uses in his tone of voice. Another way he impacted the audience was his creative way of appealing to their ideal America. During those days the American people wanted peace, to be up-to-date with technological advances, and to stand by the hand of God. Kennedy appealed the people of america by saying things like “we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace”. Also saying “let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God 's work must truly be our own.”.
These devices can be applied more effectively by verbal communication. Firstly, face-to-face communication allows speaker to show his persistence, determination, establishing trust and constitute a strong emotional bond on audiences. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech is an accurate masterpiece of rhetorical devices. In his speech, he quotes from the Constitution of the United States and builds up his own credibility, refers to the religious and patriotic documents by drawing attention on emotional values of many people. Additionally, he makes some rhythmic repetitions, which enriches the power of his words such as “Let freedom ring from”, “One hundred years later” and “Now is the time”.
In his prominent 1961 Inaugural Address, John F. Kennedy extensively employs pathos, parallelism, antithesis, and varied syntax to captivate millions of people, particularly to persuade them to stand together and attempt to further human rights for the “betterment” of the world. Kennedy’s effective use of various rhetorical styles succeeds in persuading his audience –the world and the U.S citizens—that his newly-seized position as the U.S. President will be worthwhile for all. Evident throughout his entire address, Kennedy employs a cogent pathos appeal to keep his audience intrigued. This can be demonstrated when Kennedy initially proclaims: “Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans…” who he urges to be “unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of…human rights to which this nation has always been committed…” (Kennedy). Kennedy’s usage of “we” rather than “I” gives the audience a sense that they exist as part of something big, perhaps a family, while portraying Kennedy as a people’s president who desires to be a “person in the crowd.” Throughout his address, Kennedy establishes pathos mainly by appealing to American patriotism, a significant concept during the Cold War period in which Americans needed a jingoistic spirit to succeed.
