Next, these are the phrases that contain “I have a dream” phrase that we edit by using the online picture editor,PIZAP.



Anaphora (repeating words at the beginning of neigbouring clauses) is a commonly used rhetorical device. Repeating the word twice sets the pattern, and further repetitions emphasize the pattern and increase the rethorical effect. ‘I have a dream’ is repeated in eight successive sentences, and is one of the most often cited examples of anaphora in modern rethoric. For example, Martin Luther King Jr. emphasizes the phrases by repeating at the beginning of sentences.


Metaphors allow you to associate your speech concepts with concrete images and emotions.To highlight the contrast between two abstract concepts, consider associating them with contrasting concrete metaphors. For example, Martin Lurther King Jr. use the word ‘dream’ as a frame for the future and sets the stage of the rest of the words.

Report: From the speech’s text of Martin Luther King Jr. we find that  he uses the Anaphora and Methapor as the manner of speech. Anaphor; he keeps repeating the same phrase, which is I have a dream, in order to emphasize his  intention to change  the rule of the country so that the transformation will succeed. Methapor; in his speech, he uses the word ‘dream’ to replace his real hope or intention to make the citizen more concern about the future.

In this example, I have opened a corpus text file called “ihad.txt” by double clicking on the file. The file name appears in the left-hand window. *Corpus, is a long-text file that used in antconc to analyze it.

In my case, I was assigned to analyze the speech of Martin Luther King Jr.  entitled I Have a Dream. As pronounced to the march on Washington, DC, 28 August 1963. So, his speech is my corpus that will be used in antconc.
