Notes in class: Ethos: Can the audience determine you or your sources are:
Is there evidence of your external credibility? Does your letter have:
illustrate knowledge and trustworthiness
have internal credibility that helps illustrate authority
foster a good reputation
contain common ground or empathy
Consider the emotional side of your argument. For the man with the unexplained symptoms, you may beg him to see a doctor because you're worried about him, or try to scare him with how bad his symptoms seem.
Use rich, evocative language. Use metaphors, adjectives and vivid imagery. All these things appeal to the emotional mind more than they appeal to the logical mind.
Support your arguments with personal anecdotes that have emotional meaning for you or for your listener, or use facts that evoke feelings. For example, tell him that you are losing sleep because you're so worried about his symptoms -- make him feel guilty for the concern he is causing you.
