Let’s take a look at some examples for an argumentative essay for example if I say it’s hot today that’s a general statement it’s rhetorical and it’s empty so I am insecure that the other person did not understand me so I support it by telling a story with details for example after I parked downtown when I was walking up the street I couldn’t make it to the library without stopping in a deli to buy a bottle of cold water so this specific example is a story set in a civic moment in time and the details help you feel just how hot it really is another example is I’m tired today a general statement rhetoric empty language I’m afraid you didn’t really understand me because you didn’t really feel what I was trying to say so I support it with another narrative when I was driving west on Memorial when I stopped at the intersection with Westcott I closed my eyes and almost fell asleep there I don’t told another story it is a narrative set in a specific moment in time and it has details in it that help you feel just how tired I really am. Get to know how and what kind of details to add to your paper with Edusson.
If you feel that specific examples are new to you they aren’t you have heard specific examples you have heard narratives and stories before where in your religion so think about your religious book it is full of stories why did the authors of religious books tell so many stories was it just for fun no the stories help you understand the points that the writers are trying to make if you tell someone don’t lie that person doesn’t really understand what you are trying to say if you tell a narrative a story with details about a specific person who lied at a specific moment in time and suffered the consequences of lying then you make the person understand why lying is bad and you use specific examples in your culture too they are not unique to American culture you use examples in conversations with your family members around the kitchen table you try to convince tractor you try to persuade each other you don’t just state your opinion and then move on and drop it.
You go into detail which means that you elaborate and you elaborate by telling stories so specific examples are how we talk it out you cannot have a supporting point without a specific example accompanying it the supporting point is not enough it is incomplete without a specific example I like to compare supporting points and specific examples to a lyric from a famous jazz song and the lyric is beans and cornbread they go hand-in-hand so supporting points and specific examples are like beans and cornbread they always go together the specific example elaborates the supporting point now think of a dish from your culture with at least two ingredients that always go together and then you will understand what I mean about supporting points and specific examples you will brainstorm specific examples when you brainstorm your supporting points because you put the specific examples in the outline for the essay.
