Kathryn McDermott blog #11
The place that I find rhetoric most interesting is in advertisements.
These two ads use different types of rhetoric to make their product look the best.
- The first one with carrots uses exaggeration to show that their knife is sharper than the rest
- The second is a metaphor to say that Heinz ketchup is healthy and is just tomatoes in a jar
Advertisements are important to the general public because they portray the products that we buy and use on a regular basis.
