What is speech and oral communication? Oral communication - One definition of oral communication is 'to communicate by talking', since this implies a two way interaction t hat emphasises the communication aspect rather than the simple act of articulation. Speaking and listening are by far the …most widespread forms of communication. In most jobs, people spend much more time speaking, listening and discussing than reading or writing. Talk is an important medium for getting things done, but equally important is the ability to listen carefully and to both act and reflect on what is heard. Oral skills - both speaking and listening - are at the very foundation of literacy. Oral communication is effective when it is clear, relevant, appropriate to the intended audience in phraseology and tone, concise, and informative. Speech - refers to the processes associated with the production and perception of sounds used in spoken language. Many skills are required for speech and language to develop effectively and there are many ways in which speech development can go wrong. Some people may have difficulty in moving the muscles that control speech, while others can't understand how a conversation works or the meaning of a sentence. Some people can't understand or use language whatsoever. Speech and language are terms that are sometimes used interchangeably. Speech involves articulation (how sounds are made), voice (the use of the vocal folds and breathing to produce sound) and fluency (the rhythm of speech). Language is the set of rules shared by the individuals who are communicating with each other that allows them to exchange thoughts, ideas, or emotions. Each language (spoken, written or signed) includes its own set of rules for phonology (phonemes or speech sounds or, in the case of signed language , hand shapes), morphology (word formation), syntax (sentence formation), semantics (word and sentence meaning), prosody (intonation and rhythm of speech) and pragmatics (effective use of language). Limited speech may cause difficulties with the following: . effective communication; . establishing rapport with people to develop discussions and argument; . listening and understanding; . understanding how someone feels and/or what they want to achieve; . working collaboratively.

Oral commun…ication is very important right from the beginning of life; the mother must speak to her baby in order for the baby to develop normally, especially in language. When you speak with another person, much of the content of the communication is in the sound of the voice, conveying whether the intention is to joke or be serious, to be kind or cruel--these shades of intention may be missing from or ambiguous in an email or text message. Emoticons are hardly sufficient to impart the subtleties of feeling. When a lover whispers to his beloved, a mother coos to her infant, two friends giggle together, a teacher praises a student, a 911 operator gives first-aid instructions over the phone, a criminal threatens a victim, or a spiritual teacher transmits a secret instruction--all these are interactions that have a unique effect because of the use of oral communication.

Why do you think downward communication is much more prevalent in organizations than upward communication?
Downward communicationtranspires when information and messages stream down in the course of an organization's official chain of ability or hierarchical arrangement. In other words, messages and orders start at the superior levels of the managerial chain of command and shift down in the direction of …the underneath levels. Responses to downward messages elevate the length of the identical pathway. Effective downward communication is central to an organization's accomplishment. When chiefs and managers contribute to information with lower-level employees, it is called downward or top-down, communication. While downward communication possibly will every now and then encourage a reply, it is more often than not one-directional more willingly than equal-the higher-level conversationalist does not encourage or look forward to a reply from the lower-level receiver. Downward communication provides convinced advantages to a business: managerial obedience, competence, successful message of goals and effortlessness of designation. Downward Communication is more than transient on information to subordinates. It may perhaps engross effectively organization the tone of the message, in addition to showing cleverness in designation to make sure the profession is done effectively by the right person. Although the content priorities of downward communication contain not been ultimately established, there is some point of confidence with regard to the paramount approach to downward communication top managers should exchange a few words in a straight line with instant supervisors, direct supervisors should converse with their direct descriptions, on issues of significance, top managers should then summarize by communicating by means of employees in a straight line, perhaps the nearly everyone tried and factual rule of effectual descending communication is to communicate verbally, then transcribe in writing.
