Public speaking is a kind of literature stylistic, which includes plenty of specific categories, such as the public speech, preachment of the religion and the public lecture given by the university teachers. A successful public speech owns tremendous social functions and interpersonal meanings.Though various speeches are different from each other, there are still a lot of common points between them. This paper mainly studies the stylistic characteristics of public speaking on six aspects, they are: the use of modal verb, the use of personal pronoun, the use of simile and metaphor, the use of parallelism, the use of repetition and tense of sentences. By enumerating and analyzing successful speeches, this paper aims to offer a source of reference and guidance for lecturers and relevant scholars who are engaged in the study of this field, so as to attain the goal of delivering successful speeches.
