this is the audio of the answer(do not copy word-for-word):The word freedom has many connotations, which is probably the reason why Wilson uses in his speech. He is trying to appeal to a broad audience of Americans, and freedom is a democratic concept, that the majority of Americans can relate to.And these are the "requirements":•the denotation of the word freedom•the connotation of the word freedom•the emotional effect on the audience•the change of meaning in the course of the text•the fact that freedom means many things to many people
