Communication function (observable entity)
Communication function
Communication is a function that endows a person with the capacity to produce, encode, transmit, receive, decode, and interpret information. Communication occurs through a variety of channels, using a variety of signal types. This includes but is not limited to pheromone signals involving chemical channels, body language signals involving musculoskeletal and sensory perceptual channels, written, and spoken language using physiological, mental, and physical/environmental channels. The realization of this function is the exchange of information between persons, other living organisms, and environments.
