It is my hope that anyone who reads this blog will go away with a new insight. Today I wish to talk about rhetoric. The purpose of rhetoric to make our communication more clear, conscious and rational. Classical rhetorics developed by the Greeks were designed for public speaking. It composed of 5 parts:

1. Invention - identifying and developing our logic and arguments

2. Arrangement- how to organise our arguments into the most effective order

3. Style - putting our arguments into actual language

4. Memory - creating mnemonic devices to help memorise our speech

5. Delivery - using tone of voice, phrasing and facial expressions to convey emphasis and rhythm
