Words to Know
modes of persuasion logos

Modes of persuasion are the various tools authors use to persuade

readers. Some of these modes, or forms, appeal to a reader’s powers of reason. Others appeal to the emotions.

  • Persuasive writing that appeals to a reader’s powers of logic usually

● states an issue and the author’s position;

● gives opinions or claims that have supporting reasons or facts;

● has a reasonable and respectful tone; and

● answers opposing views.

Also called Logos

modes of persuasion pathos

Persuasive writing that appeals to a reader’s emotions can sometimes

use faulty or deceptive modes. Here are some examples.

● Loaded language: Words and phrases that have a positive or a

negative connotation. For example, “These homesites for sale are

one-acre slices of paradise.”

● Bandwagon appeal: The use of words that urge readers to do or

believe something because everyone else does. For example,

“Join those who care about our town and support the new

airport.”

● Testimonials: The use of famous people to endorse a product or

idea. For example, “Actress Judith LaMonte wears Beauty Mark

lipstick.”

● Symbols: A symbol is an object that stands for something beyond itself. Symbols are often used in persuasive media messages to appeal to the emotions. For example, an umbrella can symbolize protection or a shark can symbolize danger. ●Loaded Terms: Media messages often contain words or statements that are chosen to

draw an emotional response from the viewer. These loaded terms can

cause a viewer to respond in a certain way.

Modes of Persuasion - Pathos
analyzing media

Here are some questions to ask yourself as you look for the purpose of a media message.

● How is the message presented? Is it presented by an authority?

What do your instincts tell you about the truth of the message?

● What kind of language does the message use? Does it use

phrases such as You should? Does it use words such as better or

worse?

● Does the message present a balanced picture, or does it support

only one side of an issue? What are the underlying values of the

message?

● What is the source of the information? Is it up-to-date?

As you analyze media messages for purpose, you’ll find that many of

the messages are designed to persuade.

Analyzing Media
analyzing media1

Here are some tips for analyzing a media message to find its main point:

● Break the message into smaller “pieces”: the visual image and the

text. Ask yourself, What overall point is this part of the message

making? Are the key points in each part the same?

● Look at the details. Do they add up to one main idea?

● Try to summarize each part of the message. Do these summaries

point to a main idea?

● Look for symbols in the message—objects that stand for other

things or other ideas. Are the symbols repeated in the message?

What do they stand for?
