POWERPHRASINGMAIN
Language has power, but it needs to be used well. Consider President John F. Kennedy’s famous statement “Ask not what your country can do for you, Ask what you can do for your country.” It’s not just the sentiment that is important, but the wording. It wouldn’t be the same if he had said, “Don’t ask your country to do stuff for you when you could be doing stuff for it.”

In this course, we will discuss the use of language to increase the power of your writing.

  • Understanding the power hierarchy in the parts of speech
  • The Power of Comparison – Metaphors, Similes, and Analogies
