Communication: In general, communication is the transmission of information between several entities (people, animals, cells) that are able to process this information. In communication, information is copied and not merely transmitted, since it is not lost at the original location. New information emerges where applicable in the individuals involved in the communication. The aim of communication is to change the information of a recipient. Human communication also includes the manner of transmission, e.g. ironic coloring of a quotation or the knowledge about the credibility of a source. See also information, language, communication theory, actions, understanding, frame theories.

Charles W. Morris on Communication - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas IV 30
Communication/Morris/Habermas: Morris has introduced the semiotic basic concepts of signs, sign interpretation, sign meaning etc. with the help of the behavioral basic concepts in such a way that the structural relationship between intention and meaning can be described objectivistically, i.e. without anticipating the understanding of rule-guided behavior. (1)
HabermasVsMorris: Morris refers to his teacher G.H. Mead, but misses his N.B.: Mead understands the meaning structure inherent to in animal behavior as a property of interaction systems that ensures a prior commonality between the organisms involved, initially established on an instinctive basis. The internalisation gradually replaces the instinct regulation by the cultural tradition running through linguistic communication.
MeadVsMorris: it is not enough to attribute consistent interpretations,
Habermas IV 31
identical meanings must be required. The constancy of meaning of the symbols must not only be given by themselves, but must be recognizable for the symbol users themselves.
