Description

Narratio is the presentation of essential facts.

Example

I was about 20 yards away. I saw the man hit the woman in the head once. She fell down, then he kicked her in the midriff twice and walked off.

You have asked me for this seven times before. I have said no each time. I do not agree and will not agree.

It has full ABS and traction control. With 170 bhp at your disposal, you are unlikely to need more power. The roadholding has been reported as excellent in this article. And I have never had any customer come back with any complaints.

Discussion

Sometimes simple facts are the most persuasive way of speaking. They provide incontrovertible evidence and play to needs for certainty. They also present the speaker as honest and trustworthy, such that the listener is less likely to question something which the speaker later asserts.

Factual approaches are particularly important in certain contexts, such as in law courts and scientific presentations. They are also useful in general argument as they are difficult to deny or oppose.

Classification: Reasoning
