Every newborn finds ways to communicate. Language is not essential for understanding. Non-verbal approaches like signs and symbols convey meaning globally. When you learn the nuances of conversation, you start noticing how a speaker’s facial expression, body stance, vocal tone and pace contribute to their message.
...occur when the message sent is not the message received. This happens because everyone speaks AND listens from their own subjective frame of reference, created by past experience and present understanding. Test this out by thinking of a cat. If you now ask others to describe the cat they have in mind, it’s rare to hear two matching descriptions!
