Gettysburg address example of effective communication

Uploaded by dlatrell on Apr 23, 2004

I do feel the speech was a speech that made it point. The speech was very basic. The speech was analyzed and it showed that 217 words of the 266-word speech were one-syllable words, but they done the job. The army has a saying of “bottom line up front” which I feel this speech represented. To be truthful about the speech I feel the speech got its point across to the people but I don’t feel it’s a speech to be praised like it has been.
Understanding the times that education was not a focus to 90% of the population. Therefore the use of the one-syllable words probably was the best way to communicate to the people. If this is the case, then yes I can say it was a great speech for it time and location. If we actually look at writing like the Mesopotamia Era then 1863 A.D. it was very spiritual and poetic.
Yes again, the speech was an effective speech. The speech as I can understand was directed to the audience in more ways then one, as I mention earlier. I can remember in high school that it was stated that President Lincoln was laugh at by his own cabin members because of his blur speech and lack of academic knowledge.
As I stated in the last paragraph that President Lincoln lack of academic knowledge. I also remember in class that we were to read the Gettysburg Address and give our views of it. Over 80% of the class wanted to know what so impressive about it. As I re-read it again I am still not impressed. The speech used generic words that yes it said to the audience his thoughts of the sacrifice the soldiers gave for the union but it was “simply” spoken.
I do give credit were credit is due. In his address Lincoln highlighted that the men who fought at Gettysburg were not fighting for personal gain or fame; they fought to preserve an idea, the idea that all mean are created equal. I gave more credit to him according what he stood for then I can for the speech.
