Communication is the process of transmitting information from one person to the next by acknowledging the sender’s intent,comprehending the context of the message, and acting upon it to be able to create a shared understanding. Communication is a process by which information exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs, or behavior. Communication is an exchange of information via verbal or written messages, and it is the process of sending and receiving messages (Communication, 2011; Cheesebro, O'Connor, and Rios, 2010).
By using this premise, the communication process is often affected by several barriers that will influence the feedback of the message flow thus the decoding back to the sender after send by the receiver. These barriers can be anything from speaking too fast, to no understanding the language spoken by any of the parties involve in the communication. The use of proper grammar and writing rules, can also interfere in the perception of the receiver and the feedback may not be the one expected by the original sender.
As it is explained by Manero (2014), “While there are approximately 6,800 languages in the world, people don't just communicate using "words." It is estimated that only seven percent of communication is composed of words, 38 percent is tone of voice, while 55 percent is physiology. This 93 percent is known as demonstrative communication, or nonverbal communication.”
Therefore, the communication process goes beyond the actual flowchart of sender sends a message, decodes it in a way that the receiver can encoded back to send a feedback which will be later decoded by the original sender. In cases where aforementioned barriers affect this message, demonstrative communications helps in transmitting this message in a way that could be better interpreted by the receiver.
The Merriam-Websters dictionary (2014) defines communication “as the act or process of...
