FAJARDO URIBE, Luz Amparo. On Verbal Communication. Forma funcion, Santaf, de Bogot, D.C. [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.2, pp.121-142. ISSN 0120-338X.

This paper is the result of a study made on verbal communication based on an inferential model. The main objective of this text is to provide a detailed description of each one of the elements that make part of it, in order to offer tools to the beginners, who are specially interested in language studies, to be able to differentiate models that describe communication as a decoding process from an inferential one that keeps in mind not only what is said and how it is said, but also what a speaker wants to mean.

Keywords : Emitter; receiver; context; channel; code; message; aim of communication; intention of the speaker; inference.
