Chapter 7 & 8 in Human Communication

Assalamualaikum and I’m back for a newwwwwww chapters, which is 7&8. Before I start anything, well last week on 25th of June, we were watching movie, titled The Miracle Worker. It was a good movie and I learned something new from that, like, be patient on your duty. For example, like in the movie the teacher is so patiently when she teaches this girl who are deaf, blind and cannot talk. It was amazing and I don’t know whether I can be as patient as her.

Moving on, a week after that which is 1th of July; we entered the new chapter, 7&8. Before the class started, Sir Anwari gave a briefly talks about our finals. Final exam is coming near and nearer. It scares me a lot.

So this chapter basically about 


So what is interpersonal communication?

It is communication between sender and receiver; one to another; more than 1 person involved.Something like in the picture :)There are few process in interpersonal communication...
OPENING  ---> Usually involves greetings 
  • FEED FORWARD ---> Seek to accomplish a variety of functions.
  • BUSINESS  --->  emphasizes most conversation are directed at achieving the goals!
  • FEEDBACK  ---> Reflect back at the conversation.
  • CLOSING --->  Is the closing, the goodbye.
It's the same thing you will learn in chapter 10 :)

Moving on.... There are Principle Conversation in interpersonal communication, which is:
  • Conversational turns : enable the speaker and listener to communicate about the communication in which they are currently engaged.
  • Metacommunication : takes place through the exchange of these often subtle cues.
  • Speaker cues : Speakers regulate the conversation through :
  1. Turn-maintaining cues : you can communicate your wish to maintain the role of speaker in variety ways.
  2. Turn-yielding cues  tell the listener that the speaker is finished and wishes to exchange role of speaker to the role of listener.
  • Listener cues  Listener regulates the conversation through:
  1. Turn-Requesting Cues :Let the speaker know that you would like to say something and take a turn as speaker.
  2. Turn-Denying Cues : Indicates your reluctance to assume that the role of speaker that you have nothing to say.
  3. Backchanneling Cues : To communicate various type of information back to speaker without assuming the role of speaker.
  4.  Interruptionsis contrast to backchanneling cues, are attempts to take over the role of speaker. (This are not supportive)


* Principle of Dialogue is a SYNONYM for conversation but it is simpler than conversation. Each person acts as speaker and listener simultaneously in dialogue*

Dialogue: each person in both speaker and listener, sender and receiver. (deep concern for other person and for the relationship between the two.

Monoloque: one person speaks and the other listens- theres no real interaction between participants. (It's like talking to yourself)

Immediacy& Flexibility<

The Principle of  IMMEDIACY

*Principle of Immediacy defines effective conversation. It is the creation of closeness, a sense of togetherness, of oneness between the speaker and listener*

Immediacy:  is the creation of closeness , a sence of togetherness , of oneness , between speaker and listener.



* Small talk : Is pervasive, all of us engage in a small talk. Sometimes, we use small talk as a preface to big talk*

*Introducing People: interpersonal communication situations that often creates difficulties is the introduction of one person to another. ( they dont know each other)*

*The APOLOGY: Is an impression of regret for something you did*

*COMPLIMENTING: Is a message of praise , flattery , or congratulations.
