If we are looking at all of the ways in which we communicate in all phases of our lives, then oral communication is by far the most common type of communication that we use.  When thinking about this, we must remember that we speak to people in all aspects of our lives.  We speak to our spouses, our children, our coworkers, and to many other people.  We speak in person and by telephone.  The number of words that we speak in a day is much larger than the number of words that we type, even in today‚Äôs world of email and text messages.
