A to Z Challenge: R is for Rule of Threes

The “Rule of Threes” or “Triads” as the Toastmasters Competent Communicator manual calls them add power, punch and persuasion to your speech or presentation.

Did you see what I did in the above paragraph? I used the alliteration of the “p” as mentioned in O is for Onomatopoeia and other devices.

What is also illustrated is the Rule of Threes, as seen by the grouping of the adjectives “power, punch and persuasion” describing a speech or presentation.

Group ideas, adjectives and points in threes. Expressed in threes, thoughts have a pleasant rhythm, are dramatic, and become memorable (Toastmasters Competent Communicator manual).

 A short post today. I am running one day behind so I will be A-to- Z’ding on Sunday as well. Tomorrow it is S for Structure. I hope to see you then.
