It has been observed that the communication is rather a continuous process which has no end in itself. In the process, we are continuously encoding and decoding from our environment. By decoding, we mean to convert a coded message into intelligible language that is to break up the encoded message into basic units for purposes of easy and feasible communication.

The transmitted message stimulates the catalog of experience on the other side of the destination or the receiver. The message is understood through any of the five human senses. As said earlier, the message must coincide with one of the past experiences of the receiver. The fast experiences or the acquired experiences of the sender and the receiver should be compatible and synchronized. In the light of this context, it cannot be gainsaid that the compatibility, coincidence and synchronization of the message with some of the experiences of the destination or receiver is technically called decoding.

In case a message is successfully decoded, it can be said that the process of communication has been accomplished satisfactorily. The successful decoding depends on the accurate encoding, and the encoding depends on the accuracy and effectiveness of the message, which should be perceptible, clear, accurate, meaningful and designed in a manner that the listeners, readers and the viewers are not mistaken of the meanings and the intentions.

The decoding is practiced and accepted because there is a general agreement among their uses on their basic components. It is called an implicit general agreement, as to their open social and communicative function. The first is by conventional use, entailing the unwritten, unstated expectation that derives from the shared experience of members.
