Ethos, Pathos, and Logos
Whenever you read an argument you must ask yourself, "is this persuasive? And if so, to whom?" There are several ways to appeal to an audience. Among them are appealing to logos, ethos and pathos. These appeals are prevalent in almost all arguments. To Appeal to Logic (logos) | To Develop Ethos | To Appeal to Emotion (pathos) | Theoretical, abstract language Literal and historical analogies Definitions Factual data and statistics Quotations Citations from experts and authorities Informed opinions |
Language appropriate to audience and subject Restrained, sincere, fair minded presentation Appropriate level of vocabulary Correct grammar

| Vivid, concrete language Emotionally loaded language Connotative meanings Emotional examples Vivid descriptions Narratives of emotional events Emotional tone Figurative language | | Effect | | Evokes a cognitive, rationale response | Demonstrates author's reliability, competence, and respect for the audience's ideas and values through reliable and appropriate use of support and general accuracy | Evokes an emotional response |

Logos: The Greek word logos is the basis for the English word logic. Logos is a broader idea than formal logic--the highly symbolic and mathematical logic that you might study in a philosophy course. Logos refers to any attempt to appeal to the intellect, the general meaning of "logical argument." Everyday arguments rely heavily on ethos and pathos, but academic arguments rely more on logos. Yes, these arguments will call upon the writers' credibility and try to touch the audience's emotions, but there will more often than not be logical chains of reasoning supporting all claims.
Ethos: Ethos is related to the English word ethics and refers to the trustworthiness of the speaker/writer. Ethos is an effective…...

A Welcome Read

...A “Welcome” Read Martie Brooks ENG 125: Introduction to Literature Instructor: Wanda Deffenbaugh October 8, 2012 A “Welcome” Read The Welcome Table, by Alice Walker is an image-filled short story that restores the past and reveals human nature. As an avid reader, I look for a story to capture me in the first several paragraphs. This story did just that. Immediately, Alice Walker establishes a graphic picture of a scenario that takes place during the racial segregation period. She creates a sympathetic mood that captivates the reader throughout the story. She truly illustrates the ideas of hope and change. Literature must hold up to a plethora of standards to be considered a successful piece of work. A formalist approach focuses on the actual form of the literature. It takes note of the development of the storyline and analyses the very features of the story itself. Our text points out “Every writer chooses particular literary tools to create a representation of something that exists in his or her imagination.” (as cited in Clugston, 2010. section 16.2, para 3.) A formalist approach can identify these literary tools. Alice Walker used a plethora of these literary tools to express her imagination and form her touching literary tale. The Setting The setting for a story to denote such magnitude must be clearly defined. The story is set in the South during the Civil Rights movement. This was a time when public places (including restrooms and churches)......

At the beginning of the assessment, you should receive an initial briefing about the timetable of tests, location of rooms etc. Prior to each test, you will be given instructions describing the exercise, your role, timeframe's, equipment etc. You will not be told in detail about the individual indicators which will be measured. In addition, you are unlikely to receive feedback on your results, unless you have been successfully selected.    | Training for Assessors: A collection of activities for training assessment centre assessors, roleplayers and resource persons 25/07/2002 - 16:42 - 1877 reads The data generated from assessment and development centres depends as much on the skill of the assessors as it does on the skill of the candidates. Poorly trained assessors are unlikely to be objective in their observations, will misinterpret or inadequately record evidence, probably come to the wrong conclusions and, if that weren't bad enough, the chances are they'll lack the techniques to provide effective feedback to the candidates they have so misjudged. Lindy Strudwick's collection of activities provides a means of training assessors to an appropriate level of skill, quickly and cost-effectively.

...Summary - Read-Only Participants: A Case for Student Communication in Online Classes Tonia Ray Grand Canyon University: UNV-501 January 30, 2013 Summary - Read-Only Participants: A Case for Student Communication in Online Classes More than ever, online classes are becoming a viable approach and solution for students pursuing undergraduate and secondary degrees. However, the accessibility to these classes does not guarantee all online students are receiving a quality education. Recent studies have shown that as online course enrollment increases, issues with assignment completion, lower quality work, and dropout rates have risen. One study revealed the drop-out rate for online students is 20 to 50% (Nagel, Blignaut, & Cronje, 2009), (as cited in Bernard et al., 2004). In their research, Nagel, Blignaut, and Cronje (2009) like Klemm (1998), Rovani, and Barnum (2003) felt it was essential to be participative in online discussions to be successful in a web-based learning environment. The study also revealed that within the virtual community of learners there exist two types of students that pose a risk to the online learning community, legitimate non-participation and inadvertent non-participation read-only participation. Legitimate non-participation students avoid the stage and are content observing others and contribute little to the success of the group. This type of student does not share personal learning experiences and feeds off group......

...------------------------------------------------- Top of Form Studying Literature in Grade 12 By: Francis Azouri Graduating students in Ontario should only study Canadian literature in Grade 12. Although good writers exist in all cultures, Ontario students should specifically study Canadian writers, because we need to become more familiar with our past Canadian writers. Three reasons for this are; the need to focus on our own Canadian culture despite being surrounded by other cultures, the need to promote and establish our own writers, and the need to encourage younger Canadian authors. Students in Ontario taking English should particularly study Canadian literature because we are completely swamped by the American culture around us. This is a Canadian tradition in that we have always been a “branch plant” of another country starting with England and France meaning that our own culture has never had the chance to develop since we have always been under the thumb of a stronger foreign culture. For years, a student in Ontario will study Shakespeare and other British writers. Today everyone may also study American authors such as Fitzgerald and Hemingway; however, schools tend to limit a student’s exposure to Canadian novels. In this sense, Canada is an attic in that we have stored American and British literature without considering our own literature itself,1 no wonder a Canadian student has problems appreciating their culture. Often what Canadian......

As English

...English Language Induction Task I have chosen to study English Language at A level, as I want to expand and develop my knowledge about English Language, and explore the language further. I have been told by my parents that I developed language skills very early, well before many other children of my age. I was always very interested in books and loved to recite nursery rhymes, even before I could walk. I learnt to read at a very young age as well, I was given first stage reading books at the age of 3. This meant that when I actually started school, I was a few levels above the average. I have always loved to read and still enjoy reading a good book. I am very interested to study the development of language in children. I have been told I mispronounced words at a very young age, e.g I used to say 'squiggle' instead of squirrel, so I am interested to find out why these mistakes happen. I always enjoyed the analysis aspect in GCSE English Language and I am looking forward to actively engaging with everyday language and understand how it works. In primary school, when I was around 9 years old, we were taught French once a week for about an hour. A lot of the teaching involved reading and repeating different French words; this was backed up with the use of pictures. This gave me a very basic understanding of the French language. I expanded my knowledge of the French language by going on holidays regularly to France whilst growing up. At secondary school I developed......

...10 Tips for speaking English 1. The first thing I would do after getting up every morning was to read the newspaper, front to back. It doesn’t matter which newspaper you subscribe to, as long as it is a major English-language paper, such as The Hindu, The Times of India, Hindustan Times, The Indian Express, etc. While different people have different opinions on the quality of each paper, they are all more or less equally useful in getting to learn the language. It is also not necessary to read every page and article; it is time-consuming and, sometimes, boring. However, you should most definitely look for articles that interest you. 2. I bought a pocket dictionary. They are cheap, compact and useful. There were many words I came across on a day-to-day basis that I did not know, and carrying a pocket dictionary everywhere allowed me to look up these words immediately so that the matter would not slip off my mind later. 3. Once learned, I also made a conscious effort to use the words in conversation. This instilled the words in my head and I was able to draw on them whenever required. 4. I convinced some of my friends to come together and form something of a ‘study group’; we were all interested in learning English, and I figured it would make it easier and more fun for us to do it together. We met twice a week in the evening and discussed the words and phrases we had come across, suggested articles, magazines, and books to each other, etc. 5. Another thing my group of......

...Deidre M. Pope Dr. Cowles English 250 (Exam Essay) December 10, 2015 To Read Or Not To Read…That Is The Question My generation has substitute books for technology. Cellphones, Laptops, iPads, Tables are just a few new forms of entertainment. They are also new way to learn about the world for many people. Many individuals feel that it is useless to sit around reading stories, poems, and plays in today’s society and their excused is because there is so much need for practical action in the world today. I do not disagree with them about there being a need for action in this world we live in today. My problem lays with the fact that they believe reading is pointless. At a young age my mother read to me and afterwards let me read to her. I believe this is where I became passionate for reading. Yes, I do find literature entertaining, but is that really so bad. The fact that a book is entertaining does not make it distracting at all. People use books as an escape. They read to get away from reality. Life can be hard and by picking up a good book you can lose yourself and your worries for a moment. To the critics I would response to their opinion by saying this: We use books as a learning experience. We take what we learn from literature and apply it to the real world. In my life time I have read different books that have shaped me into the individual I am now. I have read have made me emotional, more intellectually, and more spiritually to my surrounds. I have become more aware of...

...English should continue to be the official language of India. English is used as the official language in India. Yes • English is one such language that is understood by people from different castes and states, and therefore deserves to be the official language of India. • If any other language is tried to make the official language, all the regional parties will start the battle of making the state level as official language of India. • If Hindi is given priority then it will create differences among the people who don’t speak it making them feel as second class citizens. • Region C forms an important part of India that got agitated when PM Modi used Hindi for its diplomatic talks.  • The use of English language is as per the requirement of being a part of globalization and there is nothing wrong in it. No • Forget about all the different castes and religions as Indians have their own national language that is Hindi, and that should only be the official language of India. • It is the duty of the government to take the measures so that people all over in India can read, write and speak in Hindi.  • Already Indian has adopted the western culture in many ways. If it continues there will be no personal or rather say national identity of India. • In this case, India should learn something from Pakistan who made the Urdu as their official language after the division of country. • The small little steps are the ways that will make sure that the...
