What is Rhetorical Triangle
The Rhetorical Triangle gives us three methods of persuasion. You could make an argument using just one of these methods, or you could combine any two methods, or even use all three methods of persuasion
1 Logos (Message)
Logos is the main body of your argument and is designed to appeal to reason. Using an appeal to logos you attempt to use facts, truths, and logic to appeal to the reason of your audience.
You are appealing to their intelligence with facts and supporting evidence to strengthen your position
2. Pathos (Audience)
Pathos is an appeal to your audience’s emotions. You could, for example, move your audience to want to feel young so as to get them to buy a cosmetics product. You could also move them to sadness so as to get them to donate to charity
3. Ethos(Speaker) 🎙️
Ethos is the speaker’s or writer’s credibility and authority to deal with the topic in question. For example, the ethos of your doctor comes from the years of training required to become a doctor. Because of these qualifications, you will listen to their opinion on particular subjects
To be effective a persuasive speech must do three things. First, it must identify you as trustworthy in your audience’s mind (ethos / speaker). Second, it must connect emotionally with the audience to move them to action (pathos / audience). Third, it must contain a logical and reasoned proposal or argument (logos / message).
