Introduction to Communication: COMM 101
Journal 4: Verbal Communication
This week, I would like for you to address language and the ways that we alter language in different contexts.
You should change the channel this week by contacting 3 people:
- Call someone on the phone that you would not normally call.
- Text someone that you would not normally text.
- Write a letter to someone that you would not normally write a letter to.
Write a explanation of your experience and be sure to answer these four questions for each medium of communication:
- How did your messages differ between the three media?
- How did you show emotion in your language in each medium?
- How much time did each of the three forms of communication take?
- What was the recipient’s response in each instance?
