How to answer questions on language by writing a PEEE paragraph
But remember – using the PEEE chain, for an 8 mark question, you only need to thoroughly explore FOUR techniques, as well as showing your understanding of purpose and audience.
Audience: Several audiences – the politicians of America; the black people of America; the racists in America; all people of America
So how do you turn your notes into an answer?
To do this he makes great use of repetition. “I have a dream”; “Let freedom ring”; and “Free at last”. “I have a dream” makes his audience feel hopeful that his dream will come true as it would generally be a dream they share; “Let freedom ring” is an imperative sentence insisting that what he says is done; “Free at last” uses emotive language – the word ‘free’ together with ‘at last’ makes the freedom feel well deserved and fought for so the audience want it to happen.
King also uses the power of three, “black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics”. Using the three pairs allows King to cover a wide range of people who have been in conflict, which extends his audience and his message. It also emphasises just how much struggle there currently is in the world his audience can relate easier to his message. The triplet rolls off the tongue so that the audience remains interested and engaged.
King uses emotive language to persuade his audience. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.” By bringing children into it, King makes people realise that things must be improved for the future of their children. This would also make any parents who hear it sit up and take notice.
Alliteration is also used when explaining how he wants his audience to behave, with “dignity and discipline”. This gives these two words emphasis so King’s audience remembers them and remembers to act in this way.
