Dedication
This Term Paper is lovingly dedicated to our respective parents who have been our constant source of inspiration. They have given us the drive and discipline to tackle any task with enthusiasm and determination. Without their love and support, this project would not have been made possible and mostly to our Professor/Instructor Mrs. Dolly Ann Quilingin who give us the opportunity to do this Term Paper.

Acknowledgement
We would like to acknowledge the contributions of the following group and individuals to the development of this research paper. Our class peers for the cooperation and camaraderie. 
We are also heartily thankful to our teacher, Mrs. Dolly Ann Quilingin, whose encouragement, guidance and support from the initial to the final level enabled us to develop an understanding of the subject.  To our truly great friend Christopher who has made available his support in a number of ways.  Lastly, we offer our regards and blessings to all of those who supported us in any respect during the completion of the project.

Introduction

Speech is a human faulty of speaking. It is used by many to communicate with others, mostly used in public speaking. Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain the listeners. It is closely allied to "presenting", although the latter has more of a commercial advertisement connotation. In public speaking, as in any form of communication, there are five basic elements, often expressed as "who is saying what to whom using what medium with what effects?" The purpose of public speaking can range from simply transmitting information, to motivating people to act, to simply telling a story. Good orators should be able to change the emotions of their listeners, not just inform them. Public speaking can also be considered a discourse community. Interpersonal communication and public speaking have several components that embrace such things as motivational speaking, leadership/personal development, business, customer service, large group communication, and mass communication. Public speaking can be a powerful tool to use for purposes such as motivation, influence, persuasion, informing, translation, or simply ethos. In current times, public speaking for business and commercial events is often done by professionals, with speakers contracted either independently, through representation by a speakers bureau paid on commission of 25-30%, or via other means.

Background of Study

Speech is researched in terms of the speech production and speech perception of the sounds used in vocal language. Other research topics concern speech repetition, the ability to map heard spoken words into the vocalizations needed to recreated that plays a key role in the vocabulary expansion in children and speech errors. Several academic disciplines study these including acoustics, psychology, speech pathology, linguistics, cognitive science, communication studies, otolaryngology and computer science. Another area of research is how the human brain in its different areas such as the Broca's area and Wernicke's area underlies speech. It is controversial how...
