The Power of Love


Love forgives; love is kind
Love gives great peace of mind
Love requests and love shares
Love smoothes the deepest cares
Love is not surface-bent
Love is strength; love endures
Love is God heaven sent.

How Much Longer
How much longer, must I endure this pain,
How much longer, before I see you again,
How many more tears, do I shed, an ocean I've
cried, since
you were found dead.
14 week's, of a terrible hell, when last I saw you, it
was
just your shell.
No longer warm to the touch, "Oh" my darling, I
love you so much.
Cont…
I miss not touching you my love,
Since the Angel's, carried you above,
I cannot hurt, no more than I do,
My broken heart, still so in love with you,
How much longer, must I endure this pain,
It seems to worsen by the day,
I love and miss you so much my darling,
Why? was I left here, alone to stay,
We've been a pair for so long,
together, always, we do belong,
One day my life will end, my love,
I will come to you, up above,
I won't forget you, nor love another,
I wait to come to you, my Terry, my lover.

INFLECTION or INTONATION
A. Rising Intonation Pattern – used for questions
answerable by a YES or a NO

Do you love me?


Do you believe in God?

• Falling Intonation Pattern – used for questions


that begin with WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE,
WHY and HOW or simply the WH-Questions

What is your name?


How do you do?
INFLECTION or INTONATION
C. falling intonation — for statements/sentences

My boss decided to hire the five finalists.


He is capable of maintaining excellent health.
The judge and jury joked about the arrangement.

D. list intonation — for items in a series

All kinds of data are on the charts, tables, and graphs.

INFLECTION or INTONATION
E. Choice intonation — can either go double
rising or upward and downward

Would you prefer the 401(k) or the 403(b)?
Would you like window seat or aisle seat?

INFLECTION or INTONATION

Let’s Practice

NOW, with your partner, make a


script which you would use in
practicing your intonation contours.
EMPHASIS

GIVING LIFE to words or group of word

Nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs,


demonstratives, and interrogatives are
usually stressed.

These words are content words, that is, they


have meaning of their own.

I didn’t say you stole the money.
I didn’t say you stole the money.

PHRASING

grouping of words as a unit of thought

a portion of the sentence set off from the rest


by a pause

A canner can can a can.


Let’s Practice

In order that I may get the maximum out of life,/ I


realize /that I should speak and listen well.// To
speak well, / I must learn to think clearly,/ to
express my thoughts coherently, / and to speak
audibly and distinctly. // My voice should be
pleasant,/ my pronunciation clear, / and my
rate of delivery slow enough / to insure
comprehension. // Above all, / I must work to
overcome my deficiencies in speech / which
interfere with my effectiveness in
communicating ideas. //
The beginning of good reading lies in good
speaking. If you aim at good, clear articulation in
your speech, you will help yourself more than you
know, and to imagine that you can become a good
reader while you remain a careless, slovenly
speaker is absurd. It has been pointed out by
some critics that if the writer aims always at
speaking as well as he can, and at expressing
himself in ordinary conversation as well as he can,
the practice of selecting the finer sounds, phrases
and expressions becomes almost subconscious,
and he reaps his harvest when he sits down to
write.
ACCENTUATION or STRESS

Stressing on a certain syllable of a word in a


sentence by raising the speaker’s voice and
by pausing a little

ceremony
ARTICULATION

producing clarity of the vowel and the


consonant sounds

Teen Cap Hat Full Joe Sow

Tin Cop Hot Fool Jew Sew

Ten Cup Hut Pole Jaw Saw


BLENDING
Pronouncing of two or more syllables or words
as if they are one

The first word usually ends in a consonant


and the following word begins with a vowel
sound, or the other way around.
C–V
V–C
C–V-C
