There are many communication models
There are many communication models, and they all look alike. There is a sender and there are one or more receivers. The sender can choose a channel, and whatever channel she chooses, the message is distorted. The receivers are active or passive. It they react, maybe even if they don’t react, there is feedback. A channel is chosen for the feedback, and the feedback is distorted, if you like it or not. Miscommunication models would maybe be as better title.
A collection of Communication Models
For this collection we have selected more than 30 models. From the Aristotle to White.
More simple than this is difficult. See also One-way communication.
Barnlund’s Model (Transactional Model)
The transactional model of Dean C. Barnlund, in two versions.
Berlo’s SMCR Model
Berlo or Berlos? It is David Berlo, not David Berlos.
Body Language Model
Kenneth Burke created this modelo.
Clark & Martinez
Sometimes called the Escalator model.
Melvin de Fleur, Most of the communication professors have great names. I am waiting for the communication model of Bryson DeChambeau.
Question 4: explain the Dialogic Communication Model in less than 100 words.
Foulger’s Ecological Model
Joseph P. Foulger also designed a model.
The 4 Sides Model
Lasswell’s Model (Action Model, Linear Model)
Harold Lasswell is famous in communication circles. According to Wikipedia he has been described as a “one-man university”.
Gerhard Maletzke “war ein deutscher Kommunikationswissenschaftler und Psychologe”.
You said “Happy Holidays” but I heard “Merry Christmas”.

Three different pictures illustrating one-way communication. Preferred by many.
Charles E. Osgood and Wilbur Schramm worked together on this model.
The Process Model
There is noise everywhere.

From Telling to Co-creation
Telling = shouting.
The 3-layer model
And where is the heart in this 3-layer model? We need a four layer model.

The two-step flow model, by Lazarsfeld, Berelson and Gaudet. Katz is another name mention in relation to this model.
Types of communication
