This BBC article takes a look at some of the landmark speeches of the 20th Century, and comments on how effective structure of language makes for powerful and memorable rhetoric. I sometimes feel that great speeches are something of a dying art, superceded by internet forums and networking groups; but few media can match a speech for impact.
