Communication is the sending and receiving of messages between people. Language is one way of doing this and may be spoken, written, typed, signed, or represented through symbols or pictures. We also communicate through tone of voice, sounds (crying, laughing), facial expressions and our bodies (pointing or turning away).
These have a variety of causes. Read more about communication difficulties in the section on impairments.
