Communication:

"Any act by which one person gives to or receives from another person information about that person's needs, desires, perceptions, knowledge, or affective states. Communication may be intentional or unintentional, may involve conventional or unconventional signals, may take linguistic or nonlinguistic forms, and may occur through spoken or other modes."

(National Joint Committee for the Communicative Needs of Persons with Severe Disabilities, 1992, p. 2)
