  6. Special Occasion Speeches The ancient Greeks called this epideictic oratory.

  7. Special Occasion Speeches aim to inspire or to entertain through • BUILDING COMMUNITY • USING IDENTIFICATION • USING MAGNIFICATION

  8. When we aim to inspire, we celebrate what we hold in common in our community. • We reaffirm the values • We recommit ourselves to live according to those values

  9. National Day of RemembranceSeptember 14, 2001 (W pp. 85-86) • Identification • “They are the names of men and women who began their day at a desk or in an airport busy with life.” • Values discourse • We respond to tragedy with grief, prayer and resolve • “Our fellow Americans are generous and kind, resourceful and brave.” • “We have seen our national character in eloquent acts of sacrifice.”

  10. Oprah Winfrey honors Rosa Parks Oct. 31, 2005 • Magnification to Identification • “I grew up in the South, and Rosa Parks was a hero to me long before I recognized and understood the power and impact that her life embodied. I remember my father telling me about this colored woman who had refused to give up her seat. And in my child's mind, I thought, "She must be really big." I thought she must be at least a hundred feet tall. I imagined her being stalwart and strong and carrying a shield to hold back the white folks. And then I grew up and had the esteemed honor of meeting her. And wasn't that a surprise. Here was this petite, almost delicate lady who was the personification of grace and goodness.”

  11. Expressing Specific Purposes and Central Ideas SP: To inspire my audience through celebrating the example of Rosa Parks. CI: Rosa Parks inspired us all to act more responsibly in the world as we imitate the spirit of courage and conviction embodied in her example.

  14. When we aim to entertain, we laugh together and so bond our community. • we can laugh at ourselves • we can entertain through observations about human nature

  15. A speech about drivers • SP To entertain my audience comparing drivers in the East Coast and Midwest drivers. • CI Since being transplanted to the Midwest I have seen that good and bad driving habits have more to do with what kinds of driving conditions and stresses people deal with than with regional differences.

  16. A speech about school memories • SP To entertain my audience by talking about our favorite elementary school memories. • CI Elementary school was a magical time filled with show and tell, marvelous lunches and recess.

  17. A speech about my term abroad • SP: To entertain my audience with tales from my semester in Spain. • CI: My study abroad experience was full of amazing and bizarre events, but I learned more about myself and how to deal with differences than I ever expected to.

  18. A speech about my family • SP: To entertain my audience with stories of my family’s summer reunions. • CI: The characters in my family sometimes do outlandish things, but I wouldn’t trade my time with them for anything.

  20. REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SPECIAL OCCASION SPEECH (See pp. 78-82 in the workbook for further details.)

  22. Requirements • DELIVERY: • Use a delivery manuscript or a speaking outline (see workbook p. 94 for advice on manuscript delivery) • Continue to aim for a conversational style • ORGANIZATION • Usually topical (maybe chronological) • Introduction, Body, Conclusion

  23. FOCUS OF ASSESSMENT: • creative use of language • creative ideas • sense of structure • good delivery • connection with/impact on audience • accomplishing the goal of the speech whether it be to inspire or to entertain • originality of thought and expression

  24. MAJOR DANGERS OF THE ASSIGNMENT (aka how to earn a C or less): • sounding informative, e.g. doing a straight biography • inappropriate or ineffective humor • reading the speech to the audience • plagiarism

  25. Veteran's Day Examples

  26. “My Crazy Aunt Sue” To inspire my audience by showing how my aunt lives life fully in the face of a painful disability.

  27. How does the speech fit the assignment? • Striking attention getter (using parallel structure and repetition) • Vivid descriptions • Focus on values: strength, lack of complaint in adversity, humor, energy, determination, joyful. • Elevated language use • Repetition/Parallelism: “the strongest person I know” ; “It hurts to”; “I complain about” • Alliteration: “whereas most would wallow in their misery” • Metaphor: “demon of a disease”

  28. Denotation vs. Connotation • Denotation is the dictionary definition. • Connotation is the cultural meaning-- what the terms suggests or implies. • "House" vs. "Home"

  29. One feature of vivid language is imagery. concrete words simile metaphor

  30. Imagery • Concrete words and Metaphor (W p. 83) • Reagan “We will never forget them or the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved good-bye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.’” • Metaphor [and quotation] • Bush “Today we feel what Franklin Roosevelt called ‘the warm courage of national unity.’” (W p. 86) • King “Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.” (T A-8) • Simile • Hibinger “Just walk into any home and there it is, sitting like an idol. We elevate it on top of special furniture; seats are arranged…. Members of households gather to worship.” (W p. 87) • Miller She “turned to me with spoon in hand, pointed like a loaded gun, and said, ‘Lick it off.’” (W p. 90)

  31. A second feature of vivid language is rhythm. Alliteration Antithesis Repetition Parallelism

  32. Rhythm • Alliteration • Repetition of the initial sound in close or adjoining words • Miller “artificial, aromatic, Avon perfume”; “After 20 min. of these dramatic displays an overwhelming feeling of guilt would hit and we would all pile in the car to the dreaded destination doom.” (W p. 89) • Antithesis • Juxtaposing contrasting ideas, usually in parallel structure • Kennedy “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” • Kennedy “Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate.” • Bush “This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing.” (W p. 85)

  33. Rhythm • Repetition • Repeating the same key word or set of words at the beginning or end of successive clauses, sentences, or paragraphs. • Bush “They are the names of…” (four times, W p. 85) • King “I have a dream”; “One hundred years later”; “go back to”; “We will not be satisfied.” (T A-8) • Lacina“He didn’t just speak of….” [compassion, tolerance, and courage] (W p 84) • Parallelism • A repetition of structure that may or may not use the same words. • Reagan “There will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews, and, yes, more volunteers, more civilians, more teachers in space.” (W p. 83) • Bush“Americans are generous and kind, resourceful and brave.” (W p. 86) • Lacina “lived and worked and loved and died” (W p. 84)

  34. Parallelism (Barack Obama June 4, 2005 Commencement Speech) “As people around the world began to hear the tale of the lowly colonists who overthrew an empire for the sake of an idea, they started to come…to try and build their own American Dream. This collective dream moved forward imperfectly—it was scarred by our treatment of native peoples, betrayed by slavery, clouded by the subjugation of women, shaken by war and depression. And yet, brick by brick, rail by rail, calloused hand by calloused hand, people kept dreaming, and building, and working, and marching, and petitioning their government, until they made America a land where the question of our place in history is not answered for us. It’s answered by us.”

  35. END

  36. Dan McCarney’s resignation speech • http://www.cyclones.com/ • To my players, past and present, thanks for putting such meaning behind the words Cyclone Football Family. You’ve been classy and humble and heroic in victories and you’ve been classy and unselfish and mature in the losses we’ve had. I’ve tried to teach you to reach higher, to impact your mind, your hearts and your lives, and you’ve done a lot more of that for me than I have for you. You will never know what an honor it’s been for me to be your head coach as we’ve tried to bring honor and prestige and respect to Cyclone football through the years.
