It is incomplete communication without any feedback by the recipient on how well the message is understood by him. The communication can be accepted through their sense such as sight, smell, sounds and others.
This communication process is divided into several basic components such as a sender transmits a message through a channel to the receiver. The sender first develops an idea which is composed into a message and then transmitted to the receiver that is who is interprets the message and receives meaning.

Otherwise, the sender cannot know whether the message understood by the receiver or misunderstanding happen. The sender also want to know whether the sender properly interpreted the massage or how their give the response to it. The hardest part to achieve of effective communication is common understanding. This is because sometimes the receiver difficult to understand what the sender massage.
