TMA COVER FORM: U214B Worlds of English II
U214 B TMA
Semester 2, 2017-2018
Cut-off date: Week 10
Length: 1500-2000 words
Persuasion in rhetoric has been perceived as an art that involves linguistic tools and stylistic eloquence. Discuss the strategies of persuasion and the rhetorical tools that are used by successful public orators, and then apply the identified tools to a selected speech extract of 200 words to show their effectiveness.
Areas of Discussion
Areas of discussing the TMA’s topic are related to U214B course Book 2 and specifically Unit 6.
Important Guidelines
Discussing the TMA’s subject matter has to draw on the following ideas:
1. Persuasion in English (5 pts)
2. Classical rhetoric (5pts)
3. Rhetorical styles and strategies (5 pts)
4. Application to a chosen text (5pts)
N.B. Students need to read Unit 6, watch DVD 2 Clip 13.2 and Clip 13.3 and think about the TMA question. Students need to take notes from Unit 6 on the linguistic and stylistic tools used in persuasion. In applying the tools they identify, student should show understanding and use appropriate selections from a well-chosen extract. The selected speech extract should be attached as appendix. When writing, students need to pay attention to structure, layout and correct language and use appropriate referencing and citation. Please note that, in addition to the textbook materials, students are strongly recommended to consult two or more of the following references.
Recommended Bibliography

Using the e-library
You can include information from the course book but it is highly recommended to use external sources from the e-library.
 You are requested to visit the e-library on campus and use it to carry out your TMAs properly.
 You are also requested to show your tutor that you used the e-library to complete your TMA. But avoid submitting a copy/paste paper, it is a plagiarized work, which is strictly banned and firmly penalized by AOU.
Guidelines on Plagiarism
If you submit an assignment that contains work other than yours without acknowledging the sources, you are committing plagiarism. This might occur when:
• Using a sentence or phrase that you have come across
• Copying word-for-word directly from a text
• Paraphrasing the words from the text very closely
• Using text downloaded from the Internet
• Borrowing statistics or assembled fact from another person or source
• Copying or downloading figures, photographs, pictures or diagrams without acknowledging your sources
• Copying from the notes or essays of a fellow student
(Slightly adapted from OU document on quoting versus plagiarism)
It is important to remember that plagiarism is strictly barred and would be subject to punitive action by the Arab Open University.
