Experience considers all information that one has learned and put in context with the world one is living in.

For successful communication,

  • information has to be correctly transmitted (Syntax)
  • the meaning (Semantics) of the transmitted information must be interpreted correctly (=understanding)
  • understanding depends on
  • the Context of the sender and receiver depends on
    • the experience (knowledge of the world) of both sender and receiver

Therefore, while Syntax determine what is a valid and well formed sentence, the meaning is important for understanding the message. The Pragmatics is what purpose the sender tried to achieve by choosing this form of message.

Experience considers all information that was learned and put in Context with the world one is living in. But for successful communication information has to be transmitted and interpreted correctly.
