Communication is an art. Experts can do without words. Often language becomes a barrier. Only a careful choice of words relative to the person addressed can work in a conversation. Here is an example of non-diligence in conversation:
Wife: ‘Honey I cooked some snacks.’ Husband: ‘OK I will have some before dinner.’
Snacks is served.
H: ‘So much! This will become my dinner.’
Wife: (Response 1): ‘OK, so I will not cook dinner, now.’
(Response 2): ‘OK, I will take it back.’
Right approach for husband was to be specific: ‘Give me a small portion, please. Shall have the dinner as well.’
This is a small example of communication gap. But is exists everywhere. We jump to speak with presumption that it is other persons’ duty to comprehend what we said. Like a monarch. This in-specific rather perfunctory communication often leads to misunderstandings which last long. Verbosity may be an excellent advantage for writing a fiction or other literature but communication is about preciseness of expression not the multitude of it or the creativity thereof.
