Communication: concepts and processes by Joseph A DeVito( Book )

23 editions published between 1971 and 1981 in English and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A mixture of theoretical and practical essays points up the purposes of, barriers to, and means of facilitating communication. Four models of how people communicate are presented. A series of essays describing communication messages and channels include considerations of "gobbledygook," nonverbal communication by touch, smell, or body movement, and an excerpt from McLuhan. Essays about communication sources and receivers concern attitudes which people bring to communication which can hinder their sending or receiving a message. These essays look at hidden premises in messages, ways to organize information, psychological barriers to communication, the importance of putting yourself in the other person's shoes, the effects of defensive attitudes on communication, and offer a guide to effective listening. Since the book is intended for use in undergraduate courses in communication, discussion questions are at the end of each essay. (Jk)

There are chapters on linguistic, learning, and communication theories. The second part deals with speech and language behavior in several areas of psycholinguistics. The chapters concern speech and language acquisition, breakdown (aphasia and stuttering), differences, and effects.

Arguing constructively by Dominic A Infante( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A refreshing fusion of interpersonal human relations and argumentation! This clear and engaging volume is unique because of its dual focus. On the one hand, the purpose is to instruct on the methods of argumentation theory. This represents a set of principles, methods, and strategies of argument that have evolved from the time of Ancient Greece. On the other hand, the intent is to teach human relations in argumentative situations, specifically, how to manage interpersonal relations during arguments. Books on argumentation and debate have tended to say little about how arguing can affect the relationship one has with an adversary. How do you prevent harm to a valued friendship, for instance? Moreover, books on interpersonal communication have had little to say about arguing. Instead, the emphasis is on achieving satisfying relations with others. The author shows that recent research makes it clear that argumentation and interpersonal communication are complementary areas of communication. Arguing constructively in informal interpersonal and small group contexts is a skill that can bring about good outcomes. Interpersonal communication instruction on building and maintaining satisfying relations with other people is lacking if it does not deal with how to do this while arguing, especially since argumentative communication probably will occur throughout a relationship
