Kevin Frank's Rhetorik und Vortragsmethodik: Wesentliche Inhalte unter PDF

By Kevin Frank

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Rhetorik / Phonetik / Sprechwissenschaft, notice: 15, Fachhochschule für Verwaltung Saarland; Saarbrücken, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Ausdruck und sprachliches Vermögen, Wortwahl und Grammatik, Auftreten und Präsentation von Sachverhalten entsprechen heute oft nicht den criteria an Klarheit und Präzision, wie es eigentlich von Nöten wäre. Dabei sind gute rhetorische Fähigkeiten für die meisten Menschen unverzichtbare Voraussetzungen für den beruflichen oder privaten Erfolg. Hervorragende Fachkenntnisse allein reichen oft nicht aus, um neue Ideen und Präsentationen vor einem fremden Publikum oder im bekannten Kollegenkreis selbstsicher und überzeugend vorzutragen. Die Aufgabe einer Rede ist vornehmlich, den Zuhörer von einer Aussage zu überzeugen. Ein Redner, der unsicher und ausdruckslos wirkt oder sich selbst zu wichtig nimmt, wird sein Redeziel kaum erreichen. Wer in Vorträgen, Präsentationen, Teamsitzungen und Einzelgesprächen engagiert und überzeugend wirken will, muss seine Themen professionell und selbstsicher vermitteln können und eine verständliche Ausdrucksweise besitzen.
Dabei ist eine gute Vortragsweise nur ein Baustein für eine erfolgreiche Rede. Darüber hinaus trägt eine sinnvolle und gute Visualisierung auch maßgeblich zum Erfolg der Stoffvermittlung bei.
Diese Arbeit versteht sich als kleine Hilfestellung auf dem Weg zu methodisch und rheotrisch ansprechenden Vorträgen.

By Artemij Keidan,Luca Alfieri,A. Keidan,L. Alfieri

Hjelmslev, R. Jakobson e M. Lotman) dove vengono esplorati i temi più antichi – eppure ancora attuali – nel dibattito sul linguaggio.

Chiude il quantity lo studio di B. Uspenskij sul ruolo dei pronomi personali nella struttura del linguaggio, nella semiotica e nella comunicazione umana, riccamente illustrato con esempi e curiosità storiche.
