In the process of advertisement, the selection of suitable words and the ability of conciseness added with other persuasive devices are required to convey the message where the audience is not only the listeners but are the customers of their product. This paper aims at the discovery of the dynamic process in which the words are used not only to communicate but to influence the target audience. Five ads of different products were selected for analysis through random sampling approach.
