People can Communicate poorly in many different ways, for example

  • Fragmented Sentence (ie.This is where a writer incorrectly ends a sentence that is not a complete sentence)
  • Run on Sentences (ie. Two clauses or sentences are not separated.e.g. I ate this morning my friend ate leftovers).
  • Comma Splices (ie. This occurs when two independent clauses are joined together by a comma. e.g. The soup cooked for three hours, it was tasteless.)
  • Dangling Modifier (ie. A modifier is a word or phrase that modifies (tells more about) word or phrase. A dangling modifier occurs where the thing being modified is not included. e.g. Typing at my computer, the foot rail broke off).

Confusion can also arise when you say or write one thing but your facial expressions or actions are inconsistent with what you say.

There are many other issues to consider and understand with respect to communication; and this is precisely what this course will do.

Sample Course Notes -

What are the Barriers to Effective Communication?

When understanding is blocked communication becomes ineffective resulting in the kinds of problems listed earlier. There are many barriers to communication including:

Using unnecessarily complicated language or words.

Using jargon not everyone will understand jargon that may be industry specific or regional.

Language difference is important to ensure that the receiver has understood your message.

Your meaning will ensure that both you and the receiver of your message both understand what you are trying to convey. Poorly expressed communication can alter the meaning. Also do not assume that the receiver will know the importance of your message.

Preconceptions - don\'t presume that the receiver of your message automatically knows what you are trying to communicate; or that they will let you know that they do not understand.

Fear or anxiety - nervous receivers may be concentrating more on how they are feeling then the communicator if they feel anxious.

Overload giving too much information at once, making it impossible to absorb.

Physical barriers i.e. when using telephones or other such forms of communication poor reception can result in the message not being heard.

Unrealistic demands- don\'t presume that the receiver is more capable then they actually are.
