    Yes these are good examples, and I found this site, but I need an issue current to 2009. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Take a look at some of the solutions to our health care dilemma.

    Or how about Iran's nuclear capabilities?

    The economy also should provide you some examples.

    I guess these would work, but how would I identify the enthymeme? Who could I use as an example that used an enthymeme in their speech?

    Look at some of the news magazines, ie, Time, Newsweek. They will have exerpts from speeches and there will also be essays that you can read.

    Would the "above the influence" campagin against drugs be considered including enthymemes in their commericals? Could this be a possible example of a social issue today?

    Post the statement you are thinking about.

    I was referring to the Above the influence campaign. Just the commercials in general. I was going to reference the site that promotes "Above The Influence"

  • Communication Studies - , Thursday, July 16, 2009 at 3:07pm

    Yes, There are some good examples at this site.
