This is a short essay that really only discusses one communication cycle at a rather basic level.

The writer has chosen a second one but there are others that might allow extension of the work - such as SOLER theory.

Theories of communication

Argyle's communication cycle

"According to Argyle, skilled interpersonal interaction (social skills) involves a cycle in which you have to translate or 'decode' what other people are communicating and constantly adapt your own."

(Moonie,N (2010) p18)

Argyle's stages of the communication cycle were an idea occurs, message coded, message sent, message received, message decoded, message understood. The first stage is ideas occur this is the process where we think about what we are going to say and who to. The second stage, message coded, is where we think about our idea and plan what to say. The third stage is message sent, this is where we speak or sign what we are saying. The fourth stage is message received; this is where the person you are speaking to has listened to what you have to say. The fifth stage is message decoded; this is where the message can be translated if needed to. The final stage is message understood, this is where the receiver can clarify the meaning or ask any questions.
