Beyond the above mentioned aspects about Jefferson, his diction in the Declaration of Independence he reveals that he is a consummate perfectionist; his word is so incredibly deliberate and demanding. He really felt the burden of what he was trying to create and took the time to choose their words carefully, so that no single word out of place or could be misinterpreted. Jefferson really was not a great orator, but he was a prolific writer of letters, and the Declaration of Independence illustrates the depth of his vocabulary and sense of style; the document is full of examples of the cadence, the alliteration, and crisp use of consonants, all of which give force to his message.
