  1. communication

    Conversation (Latin con, with) is, etymologically, an interchange of ideas with some other person or persons. Talk may be wholly one-sided. Many brilliant talkers have been incapable of conversation. There may be intercourse without conversation, as by looks, signs, etc.; communion is of hearts, with or without words; communication is often by writing, and may be uninvited and unreciprocated. Talk may denote the mere utterance of words with little thought; thus, we say idle talk, empty talk, rather than idle or empty conversation. Discourse is now applied chiefly to public addresses. A conference is more formal than a conversation. Dialog denotes ordinarily an artificial or imaginary conversation, generally of two persons, but sometimes of more. A colloquy is indefinite as to number, and generally somewhat informal. Compare BEHAVIOR.

    Synonyms:
    chat, colloquy, communion, confabulation, conference, conversation, converse, dialogue, discourse, intercourse, parley, talk

    Preposition:
    Conversation with friends; between or among the guests; about a matter.

  1. Ohio University paleontologist Haley O'Brien:

    Vocalizations can alert predators, and moving their calls into a new frequency could have made communication safer.

  2. Kyum Kim:

    We just all realized that there’s a need for communication that is kind of independent of company control, because when employees talk to each other in a work setting, they can’t be honest – and they have to always kind of be self conscious about what the boss is going to think, or what other people are going to think.

  3. Mary Kathryn Barbier:

    How much did the Germans see and photograph? It was minimal, the radio communication was a mix of transmissions in code and some in the clear and it bombarded the radio so that the Germans couldnt capture a lot of it. Even with the double agents sending the reports back there was more than the Germans could go through.

  4. Matthew Pfouts:

    In partnership with the Randolph Township School district, the Board of Education has always been committed to supporting diversity and inclusion amongst our students, staff, and community, we believe an effective partnership can only be accomplished between the schools and the community through collective input from all stakeholders. Involvement and communication with our constituents help us guide policy decisions/changes and improve district protocols.

  5. Navod Ahmir:

    For example, if I'm taking a nap, then my partner may relax in the cabin, work at a nearby park bench or explore the area until I wake, communication is key, as it's equal parts listening to understand and speaking up for yourself.
