Jargon, slang and use of acronyms – these forms of language only make sense to people with specialist knowledge. A person who doesn’t have this specialist knowledge won’t understand the message. Dialect – people who speak English using a regional dialect (for example Glaswegian or Liverpudlian) pronounce words in different ways. Distress, emotional difficulties and health problems – some conditions,
Some features that will help or hinder communication are things like lighting, if the lighting is poor they may not be able to see sufficiently and may not understand you, whereas if it is good they will be able to see what is going on around them and also will be able to see what you are doing or saying. Another is the positioning of yourself and the person who is trying to communicate, if you go down to face to face level they will feel like they are not being spoken down to and they will feel as equal and may be able to understand you better. Also if an area is overcrowded people may feel anxious about telling you certain things, so being in a quiet area will encourage people to communicate
Barriers to communication could include not being able to understand or being aware of someone’s needs, wishes, beliefs values or culture, whether from the individual not being able to communicate properly through a disability( speech impediment/ deafness) or through ignorance. Having a noisy or uncomfortable environment could have a part to play as the individual may not feel comfortable or may feel they have lack of privacy. The language we/they use could also cause problems, whether someone doesn’t speak properly or clearly, or if the language being used isn’t the individuals first language. 3.2 Q. Describe ways to reduce barriers to communication A Ways to reduce barriers to communication could include:- *Showing that you are listening and interested in what the individual has to say.
This claim uses both confusing words, and double negatives. Double negatives are used by stating: "it is not important... who are not failing..." The use of those words then can confuse the person being questioned if they do not pay an accurate amount of attention to the
Brenda Chow breaks the first rule by using many worn out metaphors and similes; Brenda Chow neglects to follow Orwell’s second rule with very poor word choice and delivery; She violates the third rule by being very wordy in her essay, leading to a more confusing and deceptive essay. It’s important for us to recognize the misuse of language so that we do not walk the same path. The best thing Brenda can do to help improve her writing and use of language would be to simplify and be more specific with her diction. Brenda Chow is guilty of using many flat and overused metaphors and similes that have almost lost all of their original meaning. For example Brenda Chow writes “The radio plays old Springsteen, and suddenly there is a lightning flash, a sudden “eureka!”, and the light bulb pulsates urgently over my head; a phrase pops into my mind” (Chow 1) or “It is a diamond in the rough”(Chow 1).
Barriers to Effective Communication Language Barriers. Obviously, communication between people who do not speak the same language is a barrier. Even when communicating in the same language, accents and the terminology used may act as a barrier if it is not fully understood by the receiver. For example, a message that includes a lot of specialist jargon, abbreviations and/or regional expressions will not be understood by the receiver who is not familiar with the terminology used. It is also important to note that body language plays a large role in communication and may become a barrier, depending on a person’s perception.
Unit 393: Understand Sensory Loss Sensory loss is an impairment of any of the senses. Without probably realising we use these senses to carry out everyday life. Sensory loss can lead to isolation and frustration for individuals who suffer with these losses. Factors may be simple things we take for granted, for example people who have difficulty hearing and seeing may not be able to enjoy watching TV, a telephone conversation, or be able to distinguish between people’s faces and so on. People’s attitudes and beliefs towards people with sensory difficulties may impact negatively on individuals as they may assume that they lack understanding; quite often it may be those who are making assumptions who are acting incorrectly in accordance with the impairment; for example, people may use a raised voice when speaking to someone with a visual impairment.
By critiquing my ability to convey an effective structure in my piece, I have realised the lack of coherence and expansion of evidence that I have yet to acknowledge, creating an effect that is less attentive to readers. Similarly, I have also, in some instances, ignored the clarity that is needed in each paragraph by the simplicity of sign posting ideas that could have created a smoother flow through the structure. Part of the reason why I condemn this piece of writing as ‘ineffective’ has much to do with the lack of clarity in that which I defined as structure as opposed to what structure really consisted of. My inability to recognize the significance of structure in a piece of writing added to a loss of creativity and individuality. The idea of a structured essay, in my mind, solely consisted on five separate paragraphs, with the essentials of an introduction and conclusion.
Unit 1-Effective Communication Effective communication helps us understand a person or situation better and enables us to resolve differences, build trust and respect. As simple as communication seems a lot of what we try to say and what other say to us can get misunderstood. This can cause conflict and frustration in personal and professional relationships. When communicating we often have to adapt the way we do depending on the person we are communicating with. Communicating with people you know for example friends or family would be very informal with maybe slang language being used and very light hearted.
Things such as sign language, Braille, and verbal communication can be hard to understand if an individual’s preferred method of communication is different to those trying to communicate with them. D2- A way to overcome this is to find out what their preferred method of communication is and try to use that method, if the method is quite difficult then try to write things down so hopefully they can read and understand what you are asking or telling them. If an individual is blind then the best type of communication would more than likely be Braille but for those who don’t know Braille it would be verbal
