King's audience on this occasion would have attributed to him a very high level of ethos, a very postive degree of speaker credibility. His followers saw him as an expert, trustworthy, dy-namic leader of their movement. In the speech and setting themselves, echos of Abraham Lincoln further reinforce his high ethos with this particular audience. As the Lincoln Memoril provides the physical setting, echos of the Gettysburg Address come through the structure of the speech (past, present, future) and in paragraphs two and five.
King utilizes varied language resources to lend power, motivation, and inspiration to his message. Consider where, for what possible functions, and how effectively he uses such stylistic devices as repetition, parallelism, and refrain. Consider especially the "I have a dream" and " Let freedom ring" passage. In the same manner, examine his use of antithetical phrasing, including "meeting physical force with soul force," "heat of oppression.......oasis of freedom and justice," and "jangling discords......beautiful symphony" How appropriate to the occasion and to King as a Southern Baptist monister was his frequent use of imagery, paraphrases, and direct quotations from the Bible? Finally, assess his heavy use of metaphors throughout the speech. Would the audience probably experience them as natural to the topic, as artificial, as fresh and stimulating, as trite and dull, or as farniliar and reassuring? What functions might have been served by partic-ular metaphors? Note especially the early extended metaphor(figurative analogy) of cashing a check.

國王的聽眾在這一次可能把民族精神的非常高的水準把歸于給他，一發言者可信性的postive 度。 他的隨從者把他視為一位專家，可信任，他們的運動的dy-namic領導人。 在講話和確定的他們自己過程中，亞伯拉罕‧林肯的回聲更進一步用這特別的聽眾加固他的高的民族精神。 因為林肯Memoril提供物理底座， 和在第2 和5 段落方面的葛底斯堡演講的回聲透過講話(過去，提出，將來)的架構。
國王利用變化的語言資源借給權力，動力和對他的消息的啟發。 認為，在那裡，為那個可能的功能和他使用象重複，二重性和疊句這樣的風格的設備多么有效。 考慮"我有一夢"特別和"讓自由戒指"通路。 同樣，檢查他對對立的用話表示的使用，包括"用靈魂力量的會議物質的力量"，"壓迫的熱 .......自由和公正的綠洲，"並且"使不諧和音發出刺耳的聲音 ......美麗的交響樂"， 多適合于那些場合和作為monister他頻繁使用形象化的描述，釋義和那些聖經的直接報價單的歲的南浸禮會教友在國王？ 最後，在整個講話期間評價他對隱喻的沉重的使用。 將那些觀眾或許經歷他們自然與那些題目，人造時，當時新和刺激，作為陳腐和黯淡， 還是作為farniliar和安心？ 什麼功能可能被partic-ular隱喻提供？ 注意到特別早延長的兌換一張支票的隱喻(比喻的類似)。
