stereotyping has also become known giving the viewers an overview of what the

Why do we frequently misunderstand these phrases or words?

- Words and phrases can be misunderstood since different people has different
views and prior knowledge when it comes to a certain information. Different
meaning can be denoted from a single word and this may cause
misunderstanding. To solve that, we must practice information literacy and be
vigilant of the context we are in to be able to fit with the environment.

- Meaning can be misunderstood because different people may have different
perspectives and views. The way people denote a meaning from words or
phrases may be affected by different aspects such us age, gender, social status,
educational background, and other factors. However, this does not mean that
they are wrong, as media literate youths we should respect their views and
promote versatility towards different people with different characteristics.
What can you say about the said quote?
- I agree that language may be a source of misunderstandings. First, people from
different countries and places have various language and traditions that
distinguishes their culture from that of the other. Also, people may derive
different meaning from other people’s speech due to their accent, non-verbal
behavior and tone of the voice. As a result, words can become a source of
conflict. However, we should not let negativity foster and put into consideration
the differences that we have. If we are able to do so, we will be working towards
the betterment of our world.
• Does the user’s/audience’s own background or experience affect the
interpretation of messages? How?
- A person’s background can greatly affect his perception of a certain message. For
instance, educational background differ from person to person and the level of
literacy affects the interpretation of messages due to the prior knowledge
acquired by the person. Another example is country of origin wherein people of
different traditions practice different culture, norms and behaviors that may vary
their understanding of a message. Hence, understanding of a message may differ
but this does not mean that a person who thinks differently from you is
incorrect. It only means that their fascinating things that the human mind can do
and that every person is unique in physical, ethical and mental aspects.
 Is it possible that a different individual derives a different meaning form the
message? Explain.
- Yes, it certainly is possible. People are very distinct when it comes to thoughts
and knowledge. The derivation of meaning may vary due to the different
backgrounds of people. Their experiences, prior knowledge and other factors can
greatly affect their perception of a certain message. As a result, many meanings
can be constructed from a single message.

that will interest the audience.
