Student’s Name: Professor: Subject: Date: Trump rhetorical devices in his 2018 State of the Union Address The three words that are pathos logos and ethos are Greek words that got their origin from Aristotle who described them as a technique of persuasion that is applied to attract the attention or convince the audience (Dlugan 1). The body of any text in this scenario usually contain these three elements with each playing a significant role to support the argument of the speaker (Dlugan 3). Basically ethos is concerned with the ethical appeal/contributes of the speaker and pathos relates to the emotional appeal or influence the speaker has on the general audience. On the other hand logos is the rational thinking logical appeal or the content/points the orator applies to convince the audience. These three rhetorical devices determine an effective success route to any public orator in line to effective address emotions. In this regard he combined all the aspects of claims facts and some of the deepest emotional longings of a great nation through highlights of real American stories who had shown real patriotism to their country and these fashioned elaborate strong interconnected emotional stories.
