Explain briefly any three semantic barriers to communication.
Three semantic barriers to communication are as follows :
(i) Badly expressed message: Sometimes due to lack of vocabulary, the manager may use wrong words, an omission of needed words, etc. Due to this, the manager may fail to convey the desired meaning to this subordinates.
(ii) Words with different meanings: Sometimes a word may have different meanings. The receiver may understand the other meaning, e.g. price, prize, principle, principal right, write, etc.
(iii) Faulty translations: Sometimes the workers do not understand the language which is used by the manager. Some workers get it translated. If the translator is not efficient, he may make mistakes in translation. Due to wrong translation, there may be the transfer of the wrong message.
