There are various different means of communication which people use to convey meaning. Non-verbal communication is the process of conveying meaning without using words. Research shows that the majority of communication is non-verbal.
Non-verbal communication includes gestures, body language, posture, facial expression and eye contact. Non-verbal communication is also called silent language, although speech does contain non-verbal elements called paralanguage.
These include voice quality, emotion and speaking style. Visual communication involves conveying information through the creation of visual representations such as signs, drawings, and electronic resources (video and television).
Oral communication primarily refers to verbal communication and typically relies on words, visual aids and non-verbal elements to support the meaning. Oral communication includes discussion, speeches, presentations, face to face conversations etc.
In face to face communication, body language and tone of voice play a significant role and have a greater impact on the listener than the intended content of the spoken words. Visual aids can also facilitate effective communication.
Another means of communication is the written word. Researchers divide the progress of written communication into three separate stages called "Information Communication Revolutions”. In the first stage, pictographs were used to communicate. They were made in stone, so at this stage written communication was not yet mobile.
During the second stage writing began to appear on paper. Common alphabets were introduced and allowed for uniformity of language across wide expanses. The invention of the Gutenberg Printing Press in the 15th century helped to increase the mobility of written communication.
The third stage revolves around the transfer of information through controlled waves and electronic signals, such as the internet and email. Communication is a process by which meaning is assigned and conveyed in an attempt to create shared understanding. Barriers to successful communication include message overload and message complexity.
