Biosemiotics which examines communication in and between living organisms in general. Human communication is unique for its extensive use of abstract language. Development of civilization has been closely linked with progress in telecommunication. Nonverbal communication describes the processes of conveying a type of information in the form of non-linguistic representations. Nonverbal communication demonstrates one of Wazlawick’s laws: you cannot not communicate. Once proximity has formed awareness, living creatures begin interpreting any signals received.

Some of the functions of nonverbal communication in humans are to complement and illustrate, to reinforce and emphasize, to replace and substitute, to control and regulate, and to contradict the denovative message. Nonverbal cues are heavily relied on to express communication and to interpret others’ communication and can replace or substitute verbal messages. When verbal messages contradict non-verbal messages, observation of non-verbal behaviour is relied on to judge another’s attitudes and feelings, rather than assuming the truth of the verbal message alone. They are included in every single communication act. To have total communication, all non-verbal channels such as the body, face, voice, appearance, touch, distance, timing, and other environmental forces must be engaged during face-to-face interaction. Written communication can also have non-verbal attributes.

Non-verbal behaviours may form a universal language system. Smiling, crying, pointing, caressing, and glaring are non-verbal behaviours that are used and understood by people regardless of nationality. Such non-verbal signals allow the most basic form of communication when verbal communication is not effective due to language barriers. Verbal communication is the spoken or written conveyance of a message.

As previously mentioned, language can be characterized as symbolic. The properties of language are governed by rules. Over time the forms of and ideas about communication have evolved through the continuing progression of technology. Advances include communications psychology and media psychology, an emerging field of study. Written communication first emerged through the use of pictographs.
