ROSHAAN AMEERDISCUSSIONPUBLIC SPEAKING "Another way to think of of the central idea is as your residualmessage-what you want the audience to remember after they haveforgotten everything else in the speech." Chpter5 Pg 87 The central idea is the thesis statement of the chosen topic you are goingto discuss. it is important because it reveal your reasoning behind thetopic. Without a thesis statement, the audience would not be able tofollow the speech. As a public speaker, it an important to create a speechwith a clear thesis statement proving your reasonings behind an issue.. The thesis statement have to be the statement that catch the audience'sattention. As a public speaker I must carefully organize a speech so thatthe public can reminisce on the words spoken. Another way to keep theaudience attentive is to be creative by using descriptive words and keepgoing back to the main point of the selected issue. The major concept of a statement is the point or message that the speakerwishes to get across to the audience. This is also known as the "principalargument." It serves as a reference for the speaker to follow whenselecting and organising the supporting points and instances that are usedto demonstrate and develop the primary idea of the speech, which is thecore concept around which the speech is constructed. The quotation implies that the primary thought serves as a residualmessage; that is, it is the impression that the speaker wants the audienceto retain long after they have forgotten the speciﬁc details and examplesthat were presented in the speech. This is the impression that the speakerwants to leave with the audience. To put it another way, the primary idea is
the most essential thing that the audience should walk away with afterhearing the speech, and it should be unforgettable and thought-provokingenough to stick with them for a signiﬁcant amount of time after the speechis over. It is possible for the speaker to ensure that they are conveying a messagethat is both obvious and succinct and that will reverberate with theaudience if they concentrate on the primary idea as a leftover message.This strategy assists the speaker in prioritising the most essential pointsand ideas and preventing them from becoming distracted by informationthat is either extraneous or peripheral to the topic at hand. Ultimately, the primary idea is an essential component of any persuasiveaddress. If it is presented to the audience in the form of a lingeringmessage, the speaker can ensure that they are conveying a message that isunderstandable, unforgettable, and inﬂuential to their audience.
