Communication – Using Language and Going Beyond

Communication is a process that allows organisms to exchange information by several methods. Communication requires that all parties understand a common language that is exchanged. A language is a system of symbols and the rules used to manipulate them. Language can also refer to the use of such systems as a general phenomenon. Though commonly used as a means of communication among people, human language is only one instance of this phenomenon. (Wikipedia)
