Communication

  • It means exchange of ideas.
  • It could be verbal and non-verbal.
  • It involves sender, message, medium, channel, receiver, response and feedback.
  • Berlo explains communication as S-R model or Sender-Receiver model. In this sender stands for stimulus and receiver stands for response.
  • This explanation of Berlo was later extended to S-M-C-R model. It stands for Sender-Message-Channel-Receiver.
  • Sender encodes the message and send it to receiver through a medium. Receiver decodes the message and send feedback through a medium.
