I think that speech writing is one of those professions where not everyone knows that it exists. So , could you please explain to us, Sarada, what the role of a speech writer is?

Sure, . And I would I’d be interested to hear how it might be different for Tina and Kosovo. But here for us, the role of a speech writer is to really help a speaker find their voice. For example, figure out what they want to say and how they want to say it. And then, you know, the job really have of a speech, as far as I believe, is to persuade the an audience to believe something, to do something. And so, you know, your job is as a speech writer, and in my view, is not to come up with the ideas for a speaker, but to help them holding hone in and clarify their own thinking . and could develop an argument and then find the most persuasive way to deliver that argument.

I happen to agree. For me, it was very important tothrough , sort of, understand the issues that were dealt dear to President Jahjaga, to her vision. Alsoversion, also to weave in personal stories, policy stanceand that’s since , in that sense you want the speech speeches to be impactful and memorable. , and true to the acharacter character of the president and the issues that she and her teams team hold dealdear.

That’s really interesting, this idea of being true to the character of the president or of the person you are writing for. I mean, do you have to know them well to write a good speech?

For me, it was very helpful to be by the president’s side and hear her talk, and hear her interact with various audiences, her counterparts, or just the ordinary people in cost of allKosovo. When I wrote a speech, I almost felt like I had to give up my own voice and adopt her voice and her vocabulary , so that the speech was closest to her vature natural voice. So yes, you need to match your speech with her to their words or their physical chemistry.

  • Words worth to be remembered:
    • hone in : 磨炼; Improves my ability to hone in on an idea and learn to execute it quickly as well as meticulously. 改善我迅速深入一个创意骨子里的能力,并且学习如何迅速而尽善尽美地体现它; 锁定目标,进一步查明或发现 例句:We can hone in on your problem areas and have your employees maximizing their skills again in no time. 我们会全力研究您公司的问题,让您的职员在最短的时间里再发挥出他们的最大才能。
    • dear: adj. 关切 例句: This is a subject very dear to the hearts of academics up and down the country. 这个话题举国上下的学者都非常关切。
    • this idea of being true to the character of the president: 符合总统本身的特点

演讲写作也是一种职业,我想并不是所有人都知道还有这样的职业存在。那么,萨拉达,你能给我们讲讲演讲撰稿人是做什么的吗?

当然可以。而且我也很想听听对蒂娜和科索沃来说会有什么不一样的地方。对于我们来说,演讲撰稿人的职责就是真正地帮助演讲者发现自己的心声,弄清楚自己想要表达什么、怎样去表达。我个人觉得,演讲的真正作用就是说服听众去相信某件事、去做某件事。所以在我看来,作为一名演讲撰稿人,你的工作并不是替演讲者出主意,而是帮助他们发现并且弄清楚自己的想法、确立论据,然后找到最有说服力的方法来传达这条论据。

跟我的想法不谋而合。对我来说,了解亚希亚加总统所关心的问题、了解她的看法是很重要的。如果你想让演讲有影响力、令人难忘、又符合总统本身的特点、还要反应她和她的内阁成员们所关心的问题,那么在演讲里穿插她的个人经历以及她的政治立场也是很重要的。

这点很有意思,“符合总统本身的特点”或者其他你为之写作的人物的特点。那么为了写出好的演讲稿,你是不是得充分了解他们才行?

对我来说,能在总统的身边听她谈话、听她跟各种各样的人交谈——跟她身份相当的人交谈,或是跟科索沃的普通民众——对我是很有帮助的。当我在写演讲稿的时候,我会觉得几乎得完全摒弃自己的声音,要用她的语气、她的用词,这样演讲才会最贴近她本身的说话方式。所以,对的,演讲稿是要跟演讲者的谈吐、跟他们本身的化学效应相匹配的。
