Speech is the primary means by which people communicate with one another. Through speech one can learn the thoughts and desires of another. Speech is a way of expressing the emotions, when one is angry, happy or sad. It brings about understanding between people and it can be a means of acquiring knowledge about people and things. It is hard to imagine what life would be like without speech; but one thing is for certain — there would be present, a communication block, which in turn would sever human relationships.
