an idea (freedom of speech)
a scientific principle (the principle of balance)
a formula (e=mc2)
Verbal symbols show meaning or emotion through writing or spoken words.
Two types of Verbal Symbols
Written words - more abstract
Spoken words - less abstract
Spoken word is written on a page but performed for an audience. It relies on a heavy use of rhythm, improvisation, rhymes, word play and slang.
