Learn to Communicate Better!

By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Having a vocabulary is essential for all human interactions. It is with words that we share our accumulated knowledge, and communicate our deepest emotions about any issue important to us, or a new idea being considered by us.

People remain free to convey such feelings, or not, but it is with clearly formed phrases that our evaluation of any situation can best be expressed, and our personal opinion made known! Again, we need the right words if what we say is to be understood and a positive impact made!

Nevertheless, there are situations in life when the most loquacious persons find themselves at a loss for words which best verbalize their mindset at a particular moment.

It is also true that sometimes a person’s actions speak louder than words. Children, which might fail to employ the magic words “thank you” after receiving a present, may still manifest their enormous gratitude, but in a way unique to them!

Most often, it comes by the interest immediately shown for the gift, by the manner of treating the gift, and by a variety of other positive reactions to it, short of the specific, appropriate terms of appreciation.

Right words, however, remain the best vehicles to express one’s thoughts and anything a person wishes to communicate. Some people may utilize bumper-stickers on their cars, wear T-shirts with a message, carry posters or banners to manifest their opinions on a variety of concerns. Yet, words coming directly from a person’s mind and mouth are most preferred. This is so, especially, in conversations between individuals.

Developing a good vocabulary is the most adequate way for anyone to select the right words in any interpersonal, human exchange. And the most effective manner to be in control of language is through much reading and the quick employment of new terms learned, as one converses with others, writes in a diary, produces an article or essay, or utilizes public platforms to address any audience.

Using the right words in any situation is always the most ideal route to follow. Addressing any issue with clarity seldom leaves any doubt in people’s minds as to what is being conveyed. The communicator is the one responsible to make the ideas fully lucid, for the benefit of readers or hearers. This is especially significant when the goal of what is conveyed demands action.
