 Introduction

Communication plays very important role for expressing the message in both ways i.e. verbally and non-verbally. Without communication we cannot imagine the world of expression. Communication is effective mean for creating the understanding of the concept. Communication can be defined as the sum of all the things which a person does when he wants to create understanding in the mind of another. It involves a systematic and continuous process of telling, listening and understanding. For creating the understanding of the concept one has to analyse the nature of the audience. Audience analysis involves various steps like size and composition, the primary audience, the probable reaction of the audience and the most important is to understand the level of understanding.

 

Language plays important role for understanding the level of the audience. If language of the sender and the receiver differs then it is impossible to communicate the message to the audience. English language is the universal language and it is practiced all over the world in the communication of all types.

English as Communication

English as Communication

English is used all over the world as a global language. This language has its unique role in expressing the ideas and information. This language is effective and relevant for setting the tone, pitch and style in any communication. English language helps in the communication as follows:

 

  1. Link Language: This language is widely spoken and understood in the every field of communication such as in Business, Education, Sports, Entertainment, Music, Technology, Computers and Fashion etc. This language links not only the parts of a country with one another but also links country to country. The development in the various technologies used today is due to this language only. The growth of any country is completely dependent on this language as it makes the communication possible between the two countries even if they are entirely different in other perspectives like culture, style, tradition, habits and the ways of expressing the message, dialects.

 

 

  1. Pronunciation: The pronunciation of this language is based on phonetics. This feature helps us to pronounce the words in a correct manner. It has been found that one can learn the vocabulary in English very easily by making the use of Phonetics, For example: The pronunciation of the word put, cut and but is pronounced as per the phonetically symbols. This shows that we can pronounce the words though looking similar n a different manner. The vocabulary of this language is wide but becomes simple with the phonetics.

 

  1. Feedback: Feedback is the most important part of the communication process. If the communicator wants to know the response of the audience then the feedback is the main source. By the effective feedback process, he can know the shortcomings and drawbacks in the message related to the language. Through feedback various changes can be made in order to make the communication effective and progressive. This language is apt for the quick and better response because of the globalised characteristics of this language.
