The Importance of Language in Interpersonal Communication was Discussed within the Scope of the Faculty Seminars of the Faculty of Communication of CIU

“The Importance of Language in Interpersonal Communication” was examined as part of the “Faculty Seminars” activity series which was started with the accreditation studies by the “Communication Education Evaluation Accreditation Board” (ILEDAK) of the Faculty of Communication of Cyprus International University (CIU).

Assist. Prof. Dr. Nalan Sınay pointed out that language, which is a common heritage, is inseparable to provide verbal communication.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Sınay expressed that language is the main tool for communication and she said communication and language are inseparable. Sınay highlighted that it is impossible for an individual to reflect this unity without impairing the integrity, stating that language is responsible for separating and joining objects, events, and concepts that belong to the outside world. Sınay said language at this point abolishes situations in which people are in despair.

Sınay said the most important feature of language is that it is a means of communication and she recalled that a systemic human language is productive and variable according to a need. Sınay stated that communication was based on the existence of the people who would communicate, adding that the messages could not be created without sending and receiving.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Nalan Sınay remarked that there are different definitions of communication and she said “Communication is a dynamic process in which people share feelings, thoughts, information, judgment, and concepts with other people with or without cultural associations.”
