Message - this word of American origin is used in modern slang language as a synonym for the word message or message. This is a way of communication, where certain information (in a direct or veiled form) is conveyed by one participant to another (group or individually).
The meaning of the message message cannot be fully equated with a message or notification, because it has its own tint with a highly specialized focus. Here the true meaning of the message comes to the fore, and the requirement for the perceiving person to catch it. That is, it’s not so much the actual information and analysis of its individual elements that make up the message, but the basic idea, the meaning that slips through a lot of words and external factors.
What it is
To understand what the word message means, help the requirements for this form of information transfer. This is the inner meaning of information, that is, not so much what a person utters (actual speech and text), but the thought that he wanted to convey.
You can spend hours talking about the war, but the message will be to call for peace, just as a person can spend hours talking to a lecture, listing the facts, but never bring a message to the audience.
The form and poetry of thought, its fullness, constructiveness, length of narration recede into the background. Similarly, the methods used are metaphors, comparisons and other literary methods. The main thing in the message is the transfer of the conceived information in undistorted form, where the meaning is preserved. For a successful understanding of the message, not only the speaker or the writer has to make efforts, but also the perceiver must, in his perception, take into account the influence of context and situation, various subtexts, as well as ways of transmitting information. In personal communication, additional factors that drastically change the main meaning of words can be intonation and posture of a person; in the correspondence, stickers and emoticons take this function.
They talk about the message when they imply the promise of all speech. This may relate to works - in the literature classes everyone analyzed the various fruits of creativity and tried to understand what the author wanted to express. So now people appreciate the movies or the speeches of politicians and famous stars. The more confused and more extensive the promises, the greater the amount of water, the more likely the question of the message sent is raised.
In art, the search for the author's message can give rise to serious disputes, especially the situation is aggravated if the context is lost, the person is dead, and descendants try to figure out what deep semantic unit he put into the description of a polka-dot dress. Perhaps the person himself didn’t mean anything of this kind, so it’s best to clarify the non-explicit messages in a dialogue with the person himself, if of course there is such a real possibility.
Usually, difficulties in finding the key meaning of the message disappear in well-constructed messages, where there is a target audience. This is perfectly used in advertising campaigns, in the implementation of which there may not be a single use directly about how wonderful a product a person needs, but a correctly chosen contingent forms an unambiguous meaning. When you start a message without an audience, you may be misunderstood or worse, understood fundamentally wrong.
The designation of this concept varies slightly depending on the category of people who use it, as well as the scope. In the advertising business, greater emphasis is placed on meaning, overtones and the ability to briefly convey a large amount of information. In the literary analysis and the field of art, the emphasis is on the semantic part of the transmitted information. If we take the slang model of communication and the everyday use of the concept, then we are talking more about the actual transfer of certain information without searching for the actual context and idea.
On the one hand, the concept of a message is very narrow in its use, on the other hand it has a huge number of faces, therefore it is impossible to find the only true synonym. In any case that it is correct to understand the depth and correctness of use, it is necessary to consider all the listed contexts. In the Russian language, this word acquires new additional meanings, and the difficulties of finding synonymous concepts are conditioned, since direct translation is impossible.
The English concept of message is synonymous in the Russian version of the message containing a certain idea. The form is not important - it can be written or oral speech, painting, installation, music, and any other form of information transfer. The second context, which reveals a message, consists in the concepts of message, letter, message that are synonymous with it - this is a kind of simplified, slang interpretation of this concept.
At the present stage, young people use this term as a replacement for any piece of information received. Partially, you can replace the message with the concepts of a sermon or lecture, when in the course of the narration and addressing a wide audience, the speaker wants to convey some main idea. It is important to distinguish that not every lecture can have a message and a simple long narrative does not always make sense. The main thing in this concept is the presence of an idea, a meaning.
You can say that the message is in any phenomenon or act, that is, this category can be compared with the presence of meaning. All life, its course and direction also develops under the influence of certain such messages, which are intuitively caught by man. In this case, it is always necessary to take into account the timeliness of the analysis of the idea invested in the message - everything has relevance and its own terms. So what is considered a semantic idea and message today can turn into a dummy tomorrow, just like the ideas of people ahead of their time, only now reach the minds of addressees.
