Public Speaking

...Public speaking is something we intentionally or unintentionally do on a daily basis. Every day you either persuade others to your point of view or they persuade you to theirs. As years have gone by, persuasion has changed and we must change our persuasion skills in order to adapt ourselves to the 21st century. For every human being that presents there is always a first time; a first time speaking from a platform, a first time standing behind a podium etc. After these “first” persuasive presentations, presenters feel like they could have done better. I will introduce to you the key concepts and theories that a professional presenter should acknowledge and learn to improve their persuasive presentation skills. In order to become a skilled and self-assured presenter, one should entail personal preparation, professional development and practice. Take in consideration that a person does not become a presenter solely by reading a presentation, but by personal preparation. Practicing is the essential in all presentations and it boosts up the presenters confidence. Presenting a persuasive presentation is seen as achieving a goal, therefore this engages in a step to step process which enables the presenter to gain insight and experience on the subject. One of the most essential key concepts for a successful persuasive presentation is practice. The ability to present effectively is developed by practice, practice produced proficiency and without practice a speaker does......

A network model is carried out by Lakoff. He intent to find out the most foundational meaning of over and regard is as its primary sense. In the network, all the other senses have less or more relation with the primary sense. Lakoff gave specific examples for very conceptual categories in the radial structured network. In his study, Lakoff used the Full Specification to category distinct but related structures at a rather elaborated level. Every distinct image schema represents a sense, while between each image schema there are different kinds of link and transformation. Speaking from the Cognitive Grammar, the terms of trajectory (TR) and Landmark (LM) derive from figure-ground relations. Lakoff explains that the distinct meaning in the semantic network related with over accounts for the various dimensionality of LM. Lakoff(1987 ) takes 2 sentences below as the example: (1) The helicopter hovered over the ocean. (2) The humming bird hovered over the flower In the sentence (1) over shows the spatial relation between a TR the helicopter, and a LM, the ocean, is extended. In the sentence (2) the relationship between TR, the humming bird, and LM, the flower, is not extended. He clarifies that the different perspectives of the LMs cause the semantic difference.

If one traces the development of mankind from what he considers its earliest stage he will find that wandering family of savages depended entirely upon what its members said to one another. A little later when a group of families made a clan or tribe the individuals still heard the commands of the leader, or in tribal council voiced their own opinions. The beginnings of poetry show us the bard who recited to his audiences. Drama, in all primitive societies a valuable spreader of knowledge, entertainment, and religion, is entirely oral”.

...Week 5: Ethical Speaking Analysis Matthew S. Ackerman Comm/ 310- Public Speaking April-18, 2013 Bradley Volmer When watching a “live” Sunday Night Football game on a local channel with my son. The halftime show came on and consisted of the usual highlights of the game, some commentary from the analysts of what needs to happen in the second half, and the recaps of the games earlier in the day. That was all the usual stuff that happens in a halftime show. But, what we were then exposed to was a two minute speech by Bob Costas regarding the issue of gun control in America. Even my young son asked, “Why is that man talking about guns?” Wow! At his young age of 6, he recognized the power of influence without even realizing it. One issue propagating another. To summarize the tragic events that occurred earlier in the week would be to say that a man killed his girlfriend then committed suicide. If that were the case, this story would never have hit the national stage and Bob Costas would not have had an avenue to voice his liberal agenda. What did happen was; Jovan Belcher, a player for the Kansas City Chiefs football team, was extremely distraught. And, it is noteworthy to say was intoxicated at the time, shot his girlfriend who later died at the hospital. Then, drove himself to the Chiefs practice facility where he was confronted by police, security and team officials. He then turned the gun on himself and committed suicide. For Bob Costas to use his position as a sports......

...Public Speaking Essay Exam 1 Hello Mr. Trump, I hear that next week you will be sharing your own favorite hobbies with business students in Queens, New York, so I am going to help you construct your speech. Anyone can deliver an interesting informative speech, for example, President Barack Obama is known for giving informative speeches to the United States. Let me explain exactly what an informative speech is; it is a speech that intends to educate the audience on a particular topic. This type of speech focuses on using description, demonstration, and visuals to explain a subject, a person, or in this case your own hobbies. An informative speech is not the same thing as a persuasive speech. Although the two can merge together, an informative speech relies more on communicating pure information to the audience. The invention of a speech is very important. Being organized is an absolute must when delivering a speech. If the speaker is unorganized and unprepared, it can definitely affect the presentation towards the group. Start off by constructing an outline for your speech. To start off, write down your favorite hobbies and narrow them down to a few. Make note to include the importance of hobbies in your speech. The three hobbies that I selected were shopping, baking with my grandmother, and reading novels. Time, style, and delivery are very important. The most important skill in speaking is storytelling. The arrangement of your draft should follow your outline. When......

...www.VietPhD.org Speaking Notes For TOEFL iBT Useful tips: (suitable for all questions) ☛Make it NATURAL, pauses, such as “well”, “um”, and “you know”, are advisable, but don’t do it too much. ☛CORRECT your mistakes as soon as you find out, for example, “... I really like standing in, I mean, ON the mountain,” (I know it’s a bad example. What I’m trying to clarify is that it is OK to make mistakes, but you gotta correct it once you made it.) so the examiner would not count down your score. ☛There is NO NEED to use freaking words, like “exonerate”, which means absolve, and “flamboyant”, which means showy.

Some of the characteristics are the speaker most be sure his/her goals are ethically sound, be prepared for each speech, honestly with the material and professional language. These are just some of the guidelines for ethical speaking. There is only one situation where I was a part of the audience where I believe that the speaker was not ethically sound. I attended a speech where the speaker was trying to convince the community that it would not be best to vote to rise the community fee. The additional community fee would be responsible to improve the gym and to get a better security company at the gate and roaming the community. The reason that spark this was that a house got burglarized last month. The speaker started and he was not prepared enough and also he was talking angrily stead of stating a good case why the fee should stay the same. He stated that the burglary was just an isolated incident and through fifth teen years there has never been a burglary. He insisted that the association just wanted to use this incident in order to rise the community fee. During his speech he shouted and point finger at the association employees. He had nothing to show to back up what he was saying just his word. He also insisted that everyone wanted the gym to be upgraded but the association did not want to spend some of the...

Speaking for What

...Speaking for What? Kendra Burgess BCOM 275 August 6, 2014 Recently, there was some controversy stirred about former first daughter Chelsea Clinton that stemmed from an article posted in the New York Times by Amy Chozick. The article is about how Chelsea Clinton now gets paid up to $75,000 for speaking engagements is booked for. This article sparked several other editorials, think pieces and online posts in response to it. The most controversial article was the editorial by columnist Maureen Dowd who wrote a very opinionated article about Clinton’s fees and was even critical of her experience as well. The subsequent online article that was written about Dowd by journalist Joe Strupp and criticizing her own fees and abilities was not only somewhat biased but almost inflammatory. I found fault with this article for this reason. The article, entitled, “Maureen Dowd is Paid Less Than Half of What Chelsea Clinton Is worth on the Speaking Circuit” is written more like an expose of Dowd than an actual objective article showing an opposing view. Two logical fallacies Mr. Strupp touches on in his article are Red Herring and also Ad hominem. This both make this article unfairly biased and take away from whatever the point of Ms. Dowd’s article was, no matter how inflammatory. The Ad hominem fallacy comes from several statements Strupp makes in his article. He lists her speaking arrangement fees within the first several paragraphs and even goes as far as casting doubt on her...

...life” (p.540). There are many reasons why English should be the official language in relation to jobs and the work environment. For example, being able to do what is required of you and make your work useful to the company. Some immigrants may not be able to work a job because they lack English knowledge. Other immigrants may be able to do a job that is required but it would not be useful to a company when for example when completed work is done in a different language and no one else in the company can understand their work. Another reason is fairness, if an immigrant always does the same job because his language limits him, while an English speaking employee is required to do multiple job tasks because he understands how to do what he is told to and that is not fair because the immigrant is doing less work than the English speaking employee. Communication problems is another reason why English should be the official language of the United States. Communication is very important in the work area, and it may be hard for some immigrants to communicate with their co-workers. In some jobs employees are required to work together and that may be hard if one employee doesn’t speak English. Communication problems may also arise when employees and customers interact and the employee doesn’t understand the customer or vise versa. Safety can also be and issue if an immigrant tries to tell an American something and does not understand and ends up getting injured or if an......

Good structure is of paramount importance as the audience only has one chance to understand what is being said. If the speaker lose the ‘thread” of what is being said they may not pick it up again, or if the speaker have missed vital points. A clear and simple structure will prevent this from happening. The easiest way to do this is in the format of a formal structure which provides the basic elements of; Introduction- gives you the first impression of the subject and background theory Main section- speakers elaborate on their chosen are of expertise. Conclusion- picks up from the point the presentation started, followed by a clear summary of the main points and finally a question or statement for the audience to think about. When making a public speech it’s important to believe in what you say so you can persuade people. Practice many times before you present your speech so you can read it confidently and smoothly. Many people make the common mistake of reading their speech too quickly so they can “get it over with”. If someone got up on stage and said.” Um, I think cars are kind of cool and uh yeah I really like cars” no one would be convinced that cars are cool because the speaker didn’t give any proof of examples to back up his or her statement.
