verbal communication

Quick Reference

Human interaction through the use of words, or messages in linguistic form. Colloquial usage refers to speech (oral communication), especially face-to-face, but academic usage includes mediated forms, written communication, and sometimes sign language. Logically, as distinguished from nonverbal communication, though in much communication these are complementary modes.
