T F When you adjust to the situation of a public speech, you are doing on a larger scale what you do everyday in conversation. Thinking positively about your ability to give a speech is one way to control your anxiety about speaking. Critical thinking is a way of thinking negatively about everything you hear in a speech. The nonverbal messages that listeners send back to speakers are called feedback. Most of the time the listener's frame of reference is identical with the speaker's frame of reference. When you give a speech to your classmates, you are engaged in one-way communication. T F T F T F T F 7. T F 8.

T F The first responsibility of a speaker is to make sure her or his goal is ethically sound. 2. T F As the Roman rhetorician Quintilian noted 2,000 years ago, the ideal of commendable speechmaking is to persuade the audience by any means necessary. A speaker's ethical obligations decrease as the size of the audience decreases. Ethical decisions need to be justified against a set of standards or criteria. 3. 4. 5. T F T F T F One of the best ways to avoid falling into the trap of plagiarism is to start work on your speeches well before they are due. Taking someone's entire speech and passing it off as your own is a form of unethical behavior called incremental plagiarism. It is necessary for a public speaker to identify his or her source whether the speaker is paraphrasing or quoting verbatim. Just as public speakers have ethical responsibilities, so too do the people who listen to a speech. Global plagiarism occurs when a speaker patches together several quotations or paraphrases without citing the sources of the statements. It is possible to disagree entirely with a speaker's ideas but still support the speaker's right to express those ideas. 6. T F 7. T F 8. T F 9. T F 10.

T F T F Adapting to audiences is one of the easiest tasks facing beginning speakers. Audience analysis first comes into play after a speaker has chosen a specific purpose.

T F One of the main reasons to use examples in a speech is that they put abstract ideas into concrete terms that listeners can easily understand. Brief examples can be used either to illustrate a point or to introduce a topic. Whenever you use a hypothetical example in a speech, it is usually a good idea to follow it with statistics or testimony to show that the example is not unrealistic. It is seldom necessary to cite the source of statistics in a speech. Research has shown that the more statistics you use, the more effective your speech is likely to be. Unlike testimony, which can easily be quoted out of context, statistics are difficult to manipulate for biased purposes. Acceptable testimony can include either statements from recognized experts or from ordinary people with special expertise on the topic. You should almost always round off statistics in a speech. 2. 3. T F T F 4. 5. T F T F 6. T F 7. T F 8. 9. T F T F Using strong, credible testimony is the best way to add human interest to a speech.

If your topic is clear in the body of the speech, there is no need to state it in the introduction. Establishing credibility is an important function of a speech introduction. One function of a preview statement is to signal that the body of the speech is about to begin. Under normal circumstances, you should work out the exact wording of your introduction after you have finished preparing the body of your speech. The crescendo conclusion is essentially a matter of the speaker getting louder and louder as the speech comes to an end. It is overly repetitious to restate the central idea in the conclusion of a speech. It is inappropriate for a public speaker to say anything so obvious as "in conclusion." 3. T F 4. 5. T F T F 6.
