Abstract


This article examined the convincing strategies that speakers used in their speeches, especially Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, and Barack Obama. It withdrew linguistic realities in different speeches by using a contextual and pragmatic view of the speeches. The results revealed that the non-mastery of the argumentative strategies used by these speakers lead the listener to inadequate interpretation of the message and ideals conveyed by the speakers. It also suggested hard tasks to the listener while interpreting these speeches that embody different devices to convince the audience.

Author Keywords: Understanding, argumentation, interpretation, ideals, message.
