How Language and Symbols Create Communication

Language and symbols are key to communication.  language and symbols are universal. Even if  our countries and cultures dont agree, we can all relate in having language and symbols. With the use of body language, facial expressions, and sign language can be used to communicate without even making a sound. Sign language is something that is essential for people who are deaf. And sometimes, body language can be more powerful then  actually speaking. Facial expressions can show people your mood. Languages like Spanish, French, and Latin can be seen as romantic while German and Russian are strong and forceful. Without symbols in communication, there wouldn’t be the emphasis and emotion in our language.

    Good explanation. I think I described my discussion in a very similar way and agree with what you have here.

    Looking back at my original post on the discussion and going to this one, it makes me realize how huge the concept of language, symbols, and communication really are. I hadn’t actually thought of the physical aspects of it (i.e. sign language, body gestures/facial expressions), and I think this really explains it well. Nice job!

    I really like how you looked more at the physical and emotional part of language and gestures rather than just verbal, a really great spin. And its true often times all it takes is a look from your mother to know that you need to put the cookie down now. Non verbal communication is as important as verbal communication in many aspects of life. Well done!
