Presentation Devices

Description

Presentation devices are linguistic 'tricks' that can help to bring your speech alive. They include:

You can also use other forms of persuasive language to create interest.

Example

I open a presentation with a poem. This gets immediate attention and stimulates curiosity. I then tell a story of when I first heard it and why it has special significance for me.

Discussion

Devices such as those described above can all be used to enliven a presentation. They they all tend to grab attention, sometimes through initial confusion, as they are not what may be expected.

It is important that they have clear purpose, so ensure they link into the presentation and help to make things clearer.

Also beware of over-using devices as this can just lead to irritation as you appear to trying too hard or seeking to look clever. The devices should be spaced out and maybe have an element of  surprise about them to create interest.
