Speech is human verbal communication using native language as the medium. Every language uses different phonetic combinations of consonant and vowel sounds which form the basic sound of the words, and with these words in their logical meanings.. A word may be express or imply, depending on the intonation of the words. The way a language sounds can make the difference between a message and an insult. And in this case, the intent of the message becomes much more important than the message itself.
To memorize a speech, the memory bank must contain good memorized lists of words that are easily assimilated by the mind. A memory bank must not be limited to printed books and printed forms but must include all the possible ways of expression. However, the use of text memory techniques like flash cards is not recommended because such methods do not ensure the quality of the spoken word. Flashcards can be used to memorize only a few words at a time, but the combination of words and speech makes a memorized piece rather impromptu and therefore quite worthless as a memorized piece.
It is easier to learn how to speak and to memorize a speech, but to ensure the effectiveness of the learned skill, the structure of the speech must be reliable. For example, it is quite wrong to expect a sentence like “I saw Joe’s house” to mean ‘I saw a house in the town today’ because there is a pause between the two words. Similarly, “Joe’s house” is grammatically incorrect. This kind of speech delay might be acceptable if it were the only kind of speech delay, but when used repeatedly in a foreign language, the effect of this speech delay will damage the language development.
Another mistake that some people make is to turn verbs into nouns. An example of this is the sentence: “Joe borrowed my bike.” In this sentence, the verb “bought” has the ability to become a noun, “a bike” in this case. While the English sentence seems straightforward enough, we are missing out on a very important rule: the order of the verb must always be written before the noun.
Another mistake in preparing a speech or memorized speech is to start with a long and complex statement and then immediately switch to a short statement. The temptation here would be to draw attention to the long and complex speech, but this habit can be very dangerous for language development. Long and complicated speeches cause the listeners to become bored with the entire speech, while short and simple statements can easily get lost in the middle of a longer and more complex speech. When this happens, we have an impulse to force the stopwatch to stop, to restart, to re-start, to repeat, etc. Thus, the overall effect of the longer and more complex speech is lost. This is why it is so important to write your speech down, even if it is on the long side.
A common mistake in preparing a speech for a medical professional, a lawyer, or an academic is a failure to write down notes. Writing things down allows you to practice your speech in advance, sharpen your ideas, refer to previous studies and sources, and remember key points. Indeed, it is recommended that you write down everything you hear and say, and not just key points. Remember that the key point is to learn your speech. If you don’t have a documented speech-language pathologist memorized speech, it’s time to get one!
