Plead: v. to make an emotional and/or serious and/or urgent request to do a subset(s)

Sometimes logical or reasoned persuasion is not enough to get someone to do something which we think is important at the moment. Trying to plead for our request may sometimes work.

Pleeease do it, please, please do it, pretty please, come on do it, ah do it, help me, save me, do it because it’s the right thing to do, make yourself feel good and do it, we don’t have much time left, I need it now, it’s an emergency, and you won’t be sorry are all ways of pleading for action with tone of voice being very important.

Most pleas are done to authority figures who have the power to grant requests. Offspring are sometimes good at pleading their case and making requests which they hope the parents will fulfill.
