In Francis Ford Coppolas The Godfather the epic tale revolves around the main character Vito Corleone Throughout the movie the viewer recognizes Vitos great ability of speech and how he masters the art of negotiating Throughout the movie Vito demonstrates how he is articulate through the conversations he has with the many men who work for him do business with him and ask favors of him It is ironic how his speech style is unusual for a man with a tremendous amount of power yet it is extremely effective His style acts as a great example to everyone involved in a management position working with subordinates as well as anyone working in sales or any other position where there is contact with potential business partners In the following paper I intend to examine Vitos speech style First I will discuss a brief history of Vito Corleones life to put his speaking into perspective I then will discuss his speaking style in different situations Finally I will look at the reactions to his speaking and his overall speaking effectiveness Vito Corleone was born with the last name Andolini He was born in Corleone Sicily in the year 1892 When Vito was nine years old his family was murdered and fearing for his own life he immigrated to the United States Young Vito did not want to be found in so he decided not to give the immigration officer on Ellis Island his last name The officer decided to put down the name of the town that Vito was from as his last name which was Corleone While hiding in America Vito decided to find work in a grocery store in New Yorks Hells Kitchen A few years later at the age of eighteen Vito married an Italian girl who had just arrived from Sicily Vito continued his work at the grocery store when a local Mafia leader made the grocery store owner give Vitos job
