to the listeners

feelings

their feelings and emotions

life

VERBAL CUES
Words

that may appeal to men may not appeal


to women.

There

are words that children use that the


elderly might find insulting and vice versa

NONVERBAL CUES
When

we appeal to someone using


emotions, we accompany this appeal
with touching, hand holding or hugging
or even putting an arm around
someones shoulder.

These

functions are not mutually exclusive


they do not exist independent of each other.
Most times, the functions overlap.

To

be able to use Regulation/ Control,


Information must be given first. Information is
also important so that there will be a basis for
Motivation to persuade the listener and to
believe in what the Speaker is saying. Motivation
will also be achieved if there is Emotional
Expression in the appeal. Finally, Social
Interaction is the basis for the other Functions to
be accomplished.
