What Is Interpersonal Communication?
Fuller, Rex M.; Goodyear, F. H.
Although widely used, the term "interpersonal communication" does not have a commonly accepted definition which distinguishes it from several other types of communication. This paper examines this lack of specificity, as reflected in basic textbook definitions of the term, with regard to three dimensions of the interpersonal process: materials and contents of communication, physical aspects of the communication process, and the ends served by interpersonal communication.
