The objective of effective public speaking is to communicate in a clear and interesting way. The
language used will depend on the type of audience and your own personal style. Because of this
there are only a few guidelines that generally apply.

The language used should not be too elaborate. Sometime speakers fall in love with long words
and quotations so that they become too elaborate in their presentation. Audiences expect to listen
to interesting speeches that they can easily understand and do not expect great oratory.

For effective public speaking simple words and expressions are better than fancy language
because this is the style they use in private conversation and they are more likely to understand it.
It appears even Shakespeare supported this idea when he used some of the smallest and
simplest words to express one of mans biggest questions "To be or not to be."

Use simple words instead of unwieldy words, where they communicate well the ideas and
thoughts you are seeking to express, for example use: Opposite instead of antithesis

Pay instead of remuneration

End instead of conclusion

Raise instead of elevate etc.

Of course there are times when a long word is the only way to be clear. If you have difficulty in
pronouncing the long word, use it as often as you can before you give your speech to get used to

because the audience often goes from objecting to the language to the speaker then on to their

The use of slang words can also be difficult. To be effective the audience must be familiar with the
meaning of the word. When you know the meaning of the slang word and it is widely accepted
then it is probably ok to use it. Just don't use them too often. However, when starting out slang
words should probably be avoided. As you gain more experience these can be added in

Effective public speaking uses the language of great conversation. The language used in
conversation is more direct and simpler than that used in formal language and written language. It
is more effective for public speaking because it is easier for the audience to understand.

Effective public speaking today is about clearly communicating to your listeners. Normally the
language used in great conversation is the most effective - simple words and phrases are used to
convey ideas and information. It is good manners and good practice to avoid using language that
offends the audience.

This modern approach to public speaking where it is the effective conveying of ideas rather than
the language used that is most important makes it easier today for most people to become
effective public speakers.
