Not only is our DNA, our fingerprints or eye recognition different, but also our communications style. Our word choices and individual denotation of words vary from each other. No individual is alike and the individual sense we personally put into writing a letter, blog, or manuscript, can be felt by the reader. However, it doesn’t stop here - each reader will also perceive the written message differently.
Out of billions of people- I, as well as you, have a specific style of the spoken word, our ‘verbal ID’. My sense, my communication ability is in my mind. You have your own. We possess a particular style of speaking, a specific set of vocabulary, even a tone of voice that contributes to our verbal ID.
As a writer I am very grateful for the English language. This language is expressive and full of word choices. Even though it is my second language, with German being my first, I communicate easier in English (verbally and in writing), because the German language has less vocabulary and is a more straight forward, harsher language. It is black and white. No talking around the bush, no softening of the tone. Still, all languages with their vastness of words, since they are the verbal expressions of people, souls, have a mental meaning when spoken. And this individual expression I call our ‘verbal ID’ – speaks to who you are, literally.
