On human communication : a review, a survey, and a criticism by Colin Cherry( Book )

146 editions published between 1957 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 2,515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, uniting the material from numerous lectures on communication theory, is designed to serve as the introduction to a series entitled "Studies in Communication," which will appear during the next few years. It is not intended for the expert in each of the many fields related to human communication, but, rather, it is designed for the general reader interested in the field. The book provides background information, historical data, definitions, concepts, and terms of reference in the area of human communication beginning with a discussion of the social aspects and the historical evolution of theory and of language analysis, including written and spoken language as well as meaning. The physical phenomena of signals, especially speech, are considered, as is the statistical and mathematical study of the information content of signals. The logic of communication is then discussed, including theories of syntactics, semantics, and pragmatics. A discussion of human information intake, cognition, and recognition ends the book. A list of references is included. (Vm)

Pragmatic aspects of human communication by Colin Cherry( Book )

19 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Human Communication' is a field of interest of enormous breadth, being one which has concerned students of many different disciplines. It spans the imagined 'gap' between the 'arts' and the 'sciences', but it forms no unified academic subject. There is no commonly accepted terminology to cover aU aspects. The eight articles comprising this book have been chosen to illustrate something of the diversity yet, at the same time, to be comprehensible to readers from different academic disciplines. They cannot pretend to cover the whole field! Some attempt has been made to present them in an order which represents a continuity of theme, though this is merely an opinion. Most publications of this type form the proceedings of some sympo sium, or conference. In this case, however, there has been no such unifying influence, no collaboration, no discussions. The authors have been drawn from a number of different countries. The first article, by John Marshall and Roger Wales (Great Britain) concerns the pragmatic values of communication, starting by considering bird-song and passing to the infinitely more complex 'meaningful' values of human language and pictures. The 'pragmatic aspect' means the usefulness - what does language or bird song do for humans and birds? What adaptation or survival values does it have? These questions are then considered in relation to brain specialisation for representation of experience and cognition
