Communication is a process of transferring information from one entity to another. Communication is commonly defined as "the imparting or interchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing, or signs". Communication is a two-way process in which there is an exchange and progression of thoughts, feelings or ideas (energy) towards a mutually accepted goal or direction (information).
In communication: 55% of impact is determined by body language postures, gestures, and eye contact 38 % by the tone of voice, 7% by the content ( the words spoken)
The first written communication began, with pictographs. These writings were made on stone, which were too heavy to transfer. During this era, written communication was not mobile, but nonetheless existed. Eventually writing began to appear on paper, papyrus, clay, wax, etc. Common alphabets were introduced, allowing the uniformity of language across large distances. Today, Information Communication Revolution, information can now be transferred via controlled waves and electronic signals- The Internet
Non Verbal Communication The process of communicating through sending and receiving wordless messages. Such messages can be communicated through gesture, body language (posture); facial expression and eye contact, object communication ( clothing, hairstyles, symbols and info graphics.
Non Verbal Communication Is also known as paralanguage, voice quality, emotion speaking style, Prosodic features rhythm, intonation stress. Written texts have nonverbal elements handwriting style, spatial arrangement of words, the use of emoticons.
Facial Expressions: A smile, frown, raised eyebrow, yawn, and sneer all convey information. Facial expressions continually change during interaction and are monitored constantly by the recipient. There is evidence that the meaning of these expressions may be similar across cultures and languages
Gestures One of the most frequently observed, but least understood, cues is a hand movement. Most people use hand movements regularly when talking. While some gestures (e.g., a clenched fist) have universal meanings, most of the others are individually learned
Looking A major feature of social communication is eye contact. It can convey emotion, signal when to talk or finish, or aversion. The frequency of contact may suggest either interest or boredom.
Oral Communication- Speeches presentations announcements Written Communication – Letters
The distinction between the words language and communication is not vividly evident however, communication is the rubric of which language was eventually created under. Language is a systematic means of verbally communicating by the use of sounds or conventional symbols while communication is the exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, signals, writing, or behavior.
