Abstract
Demonstrative communication is a way of expressing a message without using words.  It’s conveyed by both nonverbal and unwritten communication which can include body language, facial expressions, and other forms of communication not expressed verbally.  Body language is one strong example of nonverbal communication often used in demonstrative communication.  Evaluating someone’s body language can be a way of evaluating if the intended message was received and understood.  Demonstrative communication can be both effective and ineffective while delivering a message, depending on the sender and receiver.
