Oral and Written Language
Language can be oral and written. It requires the operation of complex mechanisms. Oral language includes listening and speaking, while written language reading and writing.
Speaking/listening and writing/reading constitute the two fundamental means of language production and perception. Oral language is direct and has many paralinguistic features, including tone of voice, eye contact, style, body posture, and gestures. Paralinguistic elements of communication play an important role in how meaning is conveyed, helping listeners interpret content appropriately (Barton). On the other hand, written language lacks all the above-mentioned paralinguistic features. It is not direct and does not encourage feedback (Barton).
