Semantic barriers arise from the limitations of the symbolic system itself. The different words such as efficiency, productivity workers’ participation, employees’ welfare are differently understood by different people. Sometimes, a person distorts communication intentionally, but many a times, they understand it according to their own concepts, expectations and from of references.
Symbols usually have a variety of meanings and to choose one from them and to draw inferences is an essential part of communication. As inference can give wrong signals, awareness to them and their appraisal is necessary.
