What matters is that you have researched your subject, that you have found and engaged meaningfully with peer-reviewed academic sources, and that you are developing making an evidence-based claim, rather than summarizing or giving unsupported opinion.
Academic Argument: Evidence-based Defense of a Non-obvious Position
By now, pick out a contestable one and take a stand. Your choice has to deal with the assigment rules, the occassion, your personal interests and the reaction of your listeners. Ask yourself:
So reads the King James Version. Is there anything in the Preface that approaches this in obscurity? Yet publishers justify the omission of the Preface on the ground that it is "obscure." There is not a sentence in it as obscure as this one, or as hosts of others in the King James Version. No, if obscurity is the criterion, the publishers might have omitted the version and printed the Preface, but hardly the other way. It must be that the publishers are quite unaware of the marked obscurity of great areas of their own version.

But there are ways to state a factual claim in a polemic: state that something is true or not. And even a claim of policy is possible convince your listeners the have to agree with your point of view about a policy.
Without these trenchant sentences, people are left with the impression that the King James translation descended like the gentle dew from heaven, amidst universal acclaim. The silencing of the controversial note of the Preface puts a false face upon the version, for which its original makers are not to blame.
If I went to a doctor and said 8775 Tell me how to diagnose a patient, 8776 or I went to a judge and said 8775 Tell me how to interpret the law, 8776 or I went to an artist and said 8775 Tell me how to be creative, 8776 do you think they would be able give me a few sentences that completely answer my question and prepare me for professional work as a doctor, judge, or artist? If they had spent years as students learning their subject matter, and additional years teaching or writing a textbook on their specialty, they might be very good in their professions but I 8767 d bet they 8767 d all find it tough to answer such a question in any meaningful way.

The next step to raise your public speaking education skills raise to a higher degree is looking for arguments that disagree with the conclusions of your controversial speech topics.

Thanks for your feedback. I 8767 m glad you found the page useful. I really did mean 8775 expensive 8776 in that example, though I am simply suggesting that considering cost is worth exploring in an argument, depending on the kind of argument you are making.
It must be clear that the men who, by making innumerable small changes in the text of the Bishops' Bible, produced the King James Version were poets, if at all, only in the most attenuated sense of the word. It is not thus that poems are made.

As for obscurity, is the Preface any more obscure than the version it introduced? This is the strangest of all reasons for the King James printers to adduce, yet I have it before me in writing from one of the greatest of them.
