COM 135 Review Sheet Chapter One 1. Distinguish the difference between speaking and conversation The difference between speaking and conversation is that speaking is much less formal. First off public speaking is more planned then conversation. A speaker can spend hours planning their speech, when in a conversation there is no real plan for how it is going to go. The second thing is public speaking is more formal then conversation. This is because many things such as slang and casual language are inappropriate in a public speaking setting. The third thing is that the roles of the speaker and the audience are clearly defined. This means that when the speaker is speaking the audience rarely stops them from speaking, but instead wait for the end for a Q & A session or a polite time to ask questions. 2.Compare and Contrast the different communication models There are three different communication models and they are as follows; 1. Communication as an action: There are 5 parts to this model. The first is the source. The source is the public speaker that is how the information and ideas are even to the audience. The job of the speaker is to encode the data (translate) into a code that the audience can recognize. The second part of this model is the message. This is the speech itself. The third part of this model is the channel, which can be visual or auditory. This is how the message is transmitted to the audience. The fourth part is the receiver. This is the individual who is receiving the message and has to decode it. The last part of this model is noise. This can be either internal or external and it is a way to block or change how the message is getting to the receiver.
