Diction: List the significant terms Elizabeth uses to establish her authority, to build a bridge with her audience, to address her gender, etc. Term/Phrase Effect/ SO WHAT? “foul scorn” and “enemies of my God” Immoral/worthless against God Elizabeth uses bitter diction and derogatory terms to refer to the Spaniards as “foul scorn,” or rather, immoral in their challenge of England and worthless, contemptible people. She connects with the soldiers by inciting their hatred against the enemy, which inspires them to fight for England and ward off potential invaders. She also implies, again, that the Spaniards are against God and that God is, in fact, against the Spaniards; by calling the Spaniards “enemies,” she is assuring God’s blessing in this battle. Step 3 : What is Elizabeth’s tone? How does her diction establish her tone? How does this tone allow her to achieve her purpose? Does she change her tone throughout the speech or does it remain unchanged? Look at the tone words on the wall and decide which words most accurately describe the tone of the speech and then explain WHY. (Look at your speech and write tone descriptors in the margin – note how the tone changes or stays the same.)

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
