This is something that is only used for the transactional type of public speech. The speaker includes it to help listeners from different backgrounds understand and focus on one message.
Speeches for special occasions
This type of speech is informal, created to be shorter than other speeches and includes points that will stir up feelings in the listeners.
Informational speeches
This type of speech is designed to present new information to the listeners about specific processes, concepts, events or objects they may be interested in.
Persuasive speeches
This type of speech is structured to present information that will move the listeners to want to do something like make a purchase or a donation.
Concept speeches
This type of speech is created to give the listeners more information about issues that people think about, like freedom and love.
Why concept speeches are harder to create than others
This type of speech includes points about thoughts and concerns rather than concrete information about a topic. Speakers are encouraged to put the points in order by topic, date or relationship.
Mediums for presenting speeches
These are delivery techniques used to convey a speech's message to listeners. A speech can be conveyed by people or video and audio recordings.
Wilbur Schramm
He expanded the scope of linear public speaking because he wanted speakers to remember that listeners may lose concentration during a speech.
Transactional public speaking
This type of public speech engages both the speaker and the listeners and requires both to make an effort to reach a conclusion about the material being presented.
