FOA(Further Oral Commentary) I am going to analyse president’s Donald trump’s inaugural address. The president has started his address with ‘we the citizens’. This signifies that even though he has become the president but he considers himself among the citizens and not a superior authority and will be ready to help the country in difficult situations. The words we will and together have been used often in the text which symbolizes the whole country and not just a single power. By using ‘we’ and ‘together’ the president has set a patriotic tone and used a good diction which invokes patriotism in the people. The audience being addressed here are his fellow citizens who have elected him to lead the country. The purpose of the speech is to narrate the people his strategies to for the benefit of the country. The president has to appeal the audience through logos, pathos and ethos. Appealing people through these concepts will convince the audience about his plans. The tone in his addressed is neutral. Such tone is unbiased has an objective. The president has used many stylistic devices in his speech such as alliteration, irony, paradox, and etcetera. Usage of such devices improves the quality of the speech. The above speech has a demonstrative structure. The president has used paradox in the speech where he states ‘their victories have not been your victories. The statement does contradict itself but it is a true fact stated by the authority. Trump wants a change in the system. As a political leader he is a good orator. A good orator expresses himself in a speech like trump did. The president is stating his humungous goals which he wants to achieve in his term of presidency. He is trying to convey that the task will not be easy but Trump says ‘we together will confront hardships’. This symbolizes his dedication towards the country.He has used parallelism and immense repetition in in speech. For example we will bring back our jobs; we will bring back our borders. Continuous usage of ‘we will’ generates a feeling patriotism in people.The overall structure of the speech is demonstrative. He is expressing his duties towards his country. Trump has repeated same goals throughout the text is a round about way. The above technique is called periphrasis.Trump has used many techniques to persuade the audience which are his fellow countrymen. For example he has used weasel words, anaphora and repetition in the midst of his speech by using we will consecutively for many lines.On reading the speech may not seem motivating but it would be more effective if we hear trump’s speech because as he is a good orator he would be able to convince people his objectives without any difficulty. He has mentioned a line ‘we will buy American and hire American’. This line depicts the use of technique called patriotism in his fellow countrymen who are demanding a change. This line has both cons and pros. The cons of this line are that the above sentence can be taken as bias by other people not belonging to America.Appeal through logos has also been made through the reference of The Bible In the this inaugural address. The overall speech touches each and every corner of the problems faced by The US From the corrupt politicians to poverty.So hence I would like to conclude this commentary by saying that the above address is well structured with acquainted tone and mood and is full of quality content.
