Could anyone please explain what effect repetition has on the audience of a persuasive piece of text?

For my English coursework I had to write a persuasive peice, and in the analysis of it my teacher has told me to write what the repetition of the word 'help' does. I dont know whether to link it to audience, theme, purpose, etc etc.

Any help would be good, thankss!

reinforces the message, underlines the idea being repeated

Adds conviction to what is being said; is really effective in speeches.

Repetition also indicates desperation and plead.

Repetition is a technique used to add emphasis to something.

it helps to make a theme stand out, look for the implicit meaning of why the writer may have chosen to repeat those words...
