Broadly speaking, the word “elocution” refers to one’s manner of speaking or oral delivery. Elocution is particularly used in reference to an orator’s manner of speech when speaking or reading aloud in public. Elocution can also refer to the study of proper public speaking, with particular attention paid to pronunciation, grammar, style, and tone.

The Elocution Course I provide covers all of the above and more as described below:

Elocution encompasses a number of important principles. These are commonly considered to be articulation, inflection, accent, voice, and gesture. Articulation refers to the speech sounds and their proper pronunciation. Inflection refers to the pitch or tone of the orator’s voice, and the modulation of these. Accent refers to the emphasis placed on a particular syllable, word, or phrase, in comparison to the lack of emphasis on other surrounding syllables or parts of the sentence. In terms of elocution, accent does not indicate any written marking or regional pronunciation of a particular language. Voice refers particularly to the quality, clarity and effectiveness of that which is being spoken or expressed. Gesture, of course, refers to any movement of the body that accompanies a spoken word, particularly a movement designed to emphasize or aid in the communication of the spoken word.
