Leonardo DiCaprio Climate Change Speech
Why Are Persuasive Appeals and Rhetorical Devices important?
Leonardo DiCaprio benefited from using the persuasive appeals to convince the audience by the facts so that the audience (The whole world) realizes the importance of this problem. Also he used Ethos so that the audience could connect and believe in what he was saying. Using the Rhetorical Devices was important so that the audience could remember phrases on what he said and so that his speech looked catchy. He used Logo's so that people could really start thinking about what he is saying since they are facts and they are real. Parallelism helps the author’s ideas flow and connect and the slogan will be remembered by the audience.
