    Prejudicial use of rhetorical devices would be when someone uses language that causes you to draw erroneous conclusions and will often have little ground to stand on, or use faulty evidence such as gross generalizations, stereotyping by using preconceived judgments or ideas.

    An example is loaded questions like.."do you still beat your wife?"

    Non-prejudicial rhetoric is when someone merely states simple facts, which are already in evidence.

    why are you asking for help. Read the assignment and you should be able to come to your own conclusions instead of taking the easy way out. What are you learning if you have to ask for answers? Is this an online course?

    “Some Christian—and other—groups are protesting against the placing,
    on federal property near the White House, of a set of plastic figurines representing
    a devout Jewish family in ancient Judaea. The protestors would
    of course deny that they are driven by any anti-Semitic motivation. Still,
    we wonder: Would they raise the same objections (of unconstitutionality,
    etc.) if the scene depicted a modern, secularized Gentile family?”

    Is this sentence a nonprjudicial or prejudicial? SUVs are apartment homes on wheels. Is this sentence nonprejudical or prejudicial? Said by a student who is new to honors classes and struggling with them: I would have aced the test if I wern`t in a class full of brainiacs. They studied to much and ruined the curve.

    I think one can distinguish between prejudicial and nonprejudicial rhetorical devices by judging if a statement uses the many types of devices to influence ones attitude. Stereotypes, euphemisms, and dysphemism are just a few types of devices used to invoke a feeling or thought to change ones mind or attitude about an issue.

    Rhetorical definition: Frank can be so awkward, he is like a fish out of water.
    Rhetorical explanation: I would have a better job, if there weren't so many illegal aliens.

    A person can distinguish between prejudicial and nonprejudicial used of rhetorical devices by looking to see if the statement contains facts if it does it would be nonprejudicial. If the statement uses flawed facts such as gross generalization or stereotyping that statement would be prejudicial

    hay mark, if you are so smart on the subject, why are you in this site??????

    Everyone needs help with something! That is how we learn!

    Critical thinking was a tough class for me and I had some questions too after I had done the reading and all. The way that you can tell is if it is fact or not, is someone trying to state a fact or trying to make you believe something that may not be true.

  • Critical Thinking -

    Stereotyping, Innuendo, is definitely prejudicial.
    Euphemisms sound more non-prejudicial. They are supposed to be neutral or positive expressions. They are better for using in public relations too.
