Language as a Communicative Process

Lecture no. 13 from the course: Language and Society: What Your Speech Says About You

Language as a Communicative Process

Taught by Professor Valerie Fridland | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

This lecture moves beyond the observation of individual speakers to look at the interactive nature of conversation. Learn about eight distinct factors that go into a successful conversation—conversational parameters that we process intuitively—and grasp the profound roles our shared social norms and expectations play in being understood.
