The seven elements in the speech communication processes are the sender, receiver, feedback, channel, interference, and situation. All of these elements combine and work together to determine the effectiveness of the communication. A change in any one of them is capable of producing a different result. The sender is the person who interprets the message to another, while the receiver is the person to whom the message is given.
Encoding is the portrayl of the message using symbols transmitted by the sender. The channel is where the message is given to the receiver. Examples of this include telephone or email. Feedback is the response to the message. It is passed onto the receiver, and it helps the sender determine the effectiveness of his message.
