Definition of Speaking

Šolcová (2011: 18) defines speaking as an interactive process in which individuals alternate in their roles as speakers and listeners and employ both verbal and non-verbal means to reach their communicative goals in the other words speaking is the process of building and sharing meaning through the use of verbal and non-verbal symbols, in a variety of contexts.

Somjai & Jansem (2015: 28) English speaking ability is the ability to verbalize the English  language  in  conversation  purposively, to  speak fluently  and  communicate  effectively,  to  use  language structure  and  vocabulary  in  the  right  context,  to  use appropriate  pronunciation,  and  to  apply  appropriate manner. In addition Torky (2006: 29) Speaking is defined as an interactive process of constructing meaning that involves producing, receiving and processing information. Its form and meaning are dependent on the context in which it occurs, the participants, and the purposes of speaking,

In order of the definition of speaking Qureshi (2006: 2) explains that Language is a tool for communication. We communicate with others, to express our ideas, and to know others’ ideas as well. Communication takes place, where there is speech. Without speech we cannot communicate with one another. The importance of speaking skills, hence is enormous for the learners of any language. Without speech, a language is reduced to a mere script. The use of language is an activity which takes place within the confines of our community. We use language in a variety of situations. People at their work places, i.e. researchers working either in a medical laboratory or in a language laboratory, are supposed to speak  correctly and effectively in-order to communicate well with one another.  Any gap in commutation results in misunderstandings and problems.
