I don't think it's a good habit to make. However, knowing what yer speaking on extremely well can cause that when it's combined with a strong passion for the topic at hand. Of course, to someone uninitiated in the vocabulary being used, it can come off as flowery horseshit.

In regards to everyday life, it's pretty pointless. I think he's referring to policy debate though for school, where it is practically necessary.

I've always thought it was very sad how spreading ruins the persuasive speaking aspect of Policy and, in Texas at least LD (which is sometimes little more than 1 vs. 1 policy except with value/criterion's as the major decision mechanisms instead of the stock issues)

Don't. It's a habit I have been working for years to suppress. A few weeks ago I entered a public speaking competition. I failed to place for one reason alone: Speaking too fast.

In debates, I regularly enter competitions against other college teams. Adjudicators give feedback on what they were marking, and when it comes to me, most end up criticising me for fast speech.

Speaking fast in a debate will only make you lose.

I would agree with that.

I'm not. Policy debate, as it exists currently, is pointless and stupid.
