The Basics Of Speech & Language
Defining some basic terms is essential when first learning about speech and language. For example, many people use speech, language, and communication interchangeably. Speech-language therapists and audiologists, however, mean something particular when using these three words. Luckily, the definitions of the words are easy to understand.
Communication is the broadest and most encompassing of these three terms. Communication occurs whenever a message is conveyed from one person to another. Communication can take place in a wide variety of ways. The most obvious form of communication is verbal speech—when we are talking to someone, we communicate a message to them (as long as they are listening to us, that is!). But communication can also be nonverbal, such as when you shrug your shoulders to indicate confusion, shake your head to show displeasure, or use your best motherly stare from across the room to convey to your five-year-old that they better use their manners. Most communication is nonverbal; some studies have shown that even when speaking with someone, the words we choose account for less than 10% of the overall message, while body language and vocal intonation make up the rest.
