BROADER CONCEPT
SCOPE NOTE
  • Communication systems are the medium of conveying meanings and messages from one entity or group or transmitter to another entity or group or receiver through the use of mutually understood signs, signals, symbols, images and semiotic rules. The main steps inherent to all communication systems are: (a) the formation of communicative motivation or reason, (b) message composition, (c) message encoding, (d) transmission of the message as a sequence of units/signals using a specific channel or medium, (e) reception of signals and reassembling of the message from a sequence of received signals, (f) decoding of the reassembled message and (g) interpretation and making sense of the presumed original message.
