| YEAR 8 LISTENING TASKANALYSIS SHEETName: Fred Guest Teacher: Ms AldridgeSpeech chosen: George C. Scott in Patton (General Patton giving a speech to his men)URL link: 3:40- 5-00 http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=99f_1226701416Extract: Now, some of you boys, I know, are wondering whether or not you'll chicken-out under fire. Don't worry about it. I can assure you that you will all do your duty. The Nazis are the enemy. Wade into them. Spill their blood. Shoot them in the belly. When you put your hand into a bunch of goo that a moment before was your best friend's face, you'll know what to do.Now there's another thing I want you to remember. I don't want to get any messages saying that we are holding our position. We're not holding anything. Let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding onto anything -- except the enemy. We're going to hold onto him by the nose, and we're gonna kick him in the ass. We're gonna kick the hell out of him all the time, and we're gonna go through him like crap through a goose! 1. Describe (with examples) how the speaker has engaged the audience through the use of emotive language and modality. Consider, for example, metaphor, hyperbole, and analogy. Refer to your Glossary of Terms for features to consider. Explain their effect. In the movie Patton, General Patton gives his speech to the army; because they are about to go to war and he is trying to motivate them by using emotive and powerful language to engage and fire up his men. General Patton uses first person as shown in the sentence “…some of you boys, I know, are wondering whether or not you'll …” He does this because he wants his men to that this is his belief and he wants them to believe it as well. His words engage the men because they know he has battle experience and by giving his point of view his words persuade the men to believe what he is saying. They think with the amount of war experience and rank that Patton has, his points must be true. He uses first person to persuade his men into putting their maximum effort into the war, so when it is over they don’t have any regrets, that they could have done during the war.In addition there is evidence of second person displayed in the sentence Shoot them in the belly.” This is to direct his messages at the men, so his words make the men think they are special. His words make them think as if he is speaking to them individually. The prevalence of second person makes the men feel a privilege and respect from General Patton. His words also engage them more because they are being spoken to directly making them more involved and listen in more depth. Patton also includes inclusive language, as shown in the quote “that we are holding our position.” He makes the men feel like they are in everything together, in the war with their comrades. The demonstration of this, his words give the men a sense of security. His words makes the men feel like they must provide the cover fire that the mates will need thought out the war.In addition he frequently involves inclusive pronouns in sentences like “We're going to hold onto him…” He does this to make the men in the army feel like they are belong there and are needed to fight in the war and are all. It makes the men think that they have been included and are wanted to fight. He makes inclusive pronouns occur to make sure that his men know that they all in it together and nobody is alone in the war. It makes them feel part of a solid unified group. Patton also employs colloquial language as shown in he quote “…in the ass.” He does this because he is a general in US army and there is a huge gap in the way that the men speak to each other and the way that the men speak to a general, so he demonstrates colloquialism to make the men feel that they are just as important and are needed as much as he is to fight and win the war. It makes the men feel determined to…

At face value Source 1 and Source 3 appear to agree with each other in suggesting that the reaction to the 1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty was negative. Source 3 suggests that the Irish would oppose the Treaty because of a loss of ‘national honour’, whilst Source 1 believes, correctly as later events showed, that by signing the Treaty he has signed his ‘death warrant’. From this it can be inferred that there is substantial opposition to the Treaty and that the reaction is not a positive…
