Presentation on theme: "COMMUNICATING OUR THOUGHTS. What means of communication do you know?"— Presentation transcript:


2 What means of communication do you know?

3 Letters, postcards, notes Telephone – call, SMS, MMS Fax, telex Internet – chat, Videoconference Face to face conversation Body language Symbols

4 Language is a special human faculty. Means of communicating one’s feelings and thoughts derive from the senses.



7 The means are restricted to: movement----non-verbal voice----verbal

8 Communication Verbal spoken talk chat telephoning interview meeting written letter note report advertisement Non-verbal sign symbol gesture posture silence

9 In communication with others only 30 % of the communication is verbal, 70 % is non- verbal.

10 communication through movement The language of gesture is easier. Eyes process information faster.

11 we often trust our non-verbal behaviour to reveal our true feelings.

12 Gestures and body language communicate as effectively as words- maybe even more effectively. We use gestures daily, almost instinctively, from beckoning to a waiter to punctuating a business presentation with visual signals.


14 Facial expressions, eye contact, body posture and motions, and positioning within groups. Shaking hands, touching, holding, embracing, pushing, or patting on the back all convey messages. It may also include the way we wear our clothes or the silence we keep.

15 Clothing, hairstyle, make-up, body adornment, jewellery, tattoos, piercings, glasses, facial hair, accessories such as bags. You only have to think of the huge industries associated with the above examples to recognise the cultural significance of physical appearance Many societies had (and some still do have) highly regulated codes of dress, often linked to rank and status.

16 The non-verbal communication is more than just body language: Within organisations such as the army, positions within the hierarchy are clearly signalled by uniforms, badges and behavioural codes such as saluting. In other organisations the non-verbal rules of the pecking order may not be so overt, but they are just as carefully observed.

17 These gestures are accepted both by Chinese and Americans as having the same meanings: A smile and handshake show welcome, Waving one ‘ s hand is to say “ goodbye ”, nodding the head means agreement, while shaking it means disagreement. ( some exceptions ) Putting up a hand means "May I ask a question?". Kissing means "love". Waving one's arms shows happiness.

18 There is some universality in non-verbal communication, especially in facial expressions. SurpriseDisgustHappinessAnger FearSadnessInterest seven facial expressions are recognised in virtually all societies


20 A silent form of the drama in which the story is developed by movement, gesture, facial expression, and stage properties. It is known to have existed among the Chinese, Persians, Hebrews, and Egyptians and has been observed in many other cultures. One of the oldest arts of the theatre: in ancient Greece, the pantomime was the actor and also his performance when he translated into gesture or movement the thought which the chorus was expressing. Now it is a form of musical comedy stage production, designed for families, developed in the United Kingdom and mostly performed during the Christmas and New Year season.

24 [Periander] had sent a herald to Thrasybulus and inquired in what way he would best and most safely govern his city. Thrasybulus led the man who had come from Periander outside the town, and entered into a sown field. As he walked through the wheat, continually asking why the messenger had come to him from Cypselus, he kept cutting off all the tallest ears of wheat which he could see, and throwing them away, until he had destroyed the best and richest part of the crop. Then, after passing through the place and speaking no word of counsel, he sent the herald away. When the herald returned to Cypselus, Periander desired to hear what counsel he brought, but the man said that Thrasybulus had given him none. The herald added that it was a strange man to whom he had been sent, a madman and a destroyer of his own possessions, telling Periander what he had seen Thrasybulus do. Periander, however, understood what had been done, and perceived that Thrasybulus had counselled him to slay those of his townsmen who were outstanding in influence or ability; with that he began to deal with his citizens in an evil manner.PerianderThrasybulusCypselus
