Do you know which one is a synonym for SPEECH?

  • harangue

  • pinion

  • filigree

A speech and a HARANGUE are both words that describe someone talking to an audience.However,you don't want to mix them up. A SPEECH is any kind of address given to an audience by a speaker ( My sister gave a speech at my wedding), and it can be any length or tone. On the other hand, a HARANGUE is usually a long and intense verbal attack(The harangue was vulgar and intimidating, as it was intended to be). HARANGUE can also refer to a public speech that's overly long or boring, but in any case it's almost always used as a negative word.
