  Haptics - a non verbal barrier to intercultural communication
Verbal communication, whether spoken or written uses easily identifiable elements, words, that are arranged in patterns according to established rules.
Though verbal communication is initially learnt by imitation of parents and/or other caretakers, it is considered natural that the formal rules are taught in schools and that in order to learn the verbal language of another culture it is necessary to study vocabulary and grammar.
Non verbal code is not taught in any school and there are no dictionaries or grammar books from where to learn non verbal language.

 verbal. The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.
Verbal has been used since the 16th century to refer to spoken, as opposed to written, communication, and the usage cannot be considered incorrect.
But because verbal may also mean “by linguistic means,” it may be ambiguous in some contexts.
Thus the phrase modern technologies for verbal communication may refer only to devices such as radio, the telephone, and the loudspeaker, or it may refer to devices such as the telegraph, the teletype, and the fax machine.

 VERBAL GROUPS
We have seen that nominal groups have a logical structure in which a noun headword, which signifies the "thing" that is the primary referent, forms the semantic nucleus to which the other words which make up the nominal group are attached as additional elements of meaning.
These two classes of verbs were described earlier in the introductory chapter, and you will remember that the auxiliary verbs form a closed set of verbs which consists of only a few in number, whereas there are a great many main verbs in the language.
The minimal verbal group consists of a single element, which is the main verb, as in (i) below.

"Verbal abuse" is any statement of disapproval which is undeserved and which tends to cause lasting scars.

 Yelling at Children (Verbal Abuse) | AHealthyMe.com
Studies have linked verbal aggression and physical aggression: A 1989 Harvard study found, for example, that "parents who yell frequently are the ones most likely to hit frequently, and vice versa." Even if you don't act on violent threats, they may make your child fear you and distrust you.
A 1998 study at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, determined that children who see their parents verbally abusing each other are more likely to be depressed or anxious, and to experience more interpersonal problems of their own.
The fact that signs of verbal abuse are harder to recognize and prove than signs of physical abuse may account for the seemingly low number of "official" verbal abuse cases.

 Critical Concepts: Verbal Irony
This is probably why it may at first be hard to see exactly what the difference is between verbal irony and dramatic irony: in both there is a contradiction between what the speaker says and the situation we (as the audience) see what is spoken to be uttered in.
Here we have, in separate instances, verbal irony (her pronouncing the weather vile as a way of celebrating how wonderful it is) and dramatic irony (for me, but not for her, the weather is vile, but she doesn't know that).
In verbal irony the speaker intends to be understood as meaning something that contrasts with the literal or usual meaning of what he says.

 § 296. verbal. 3. Word Choice. The American Heritage Book of English Usage. 1996
With the possible exception of Samuel Goldwyn, who said “A verbal contract isn’t worth the paper it is written on,” just about anyone who has ever made a verbal agreement knows that verbal sometimes means “spoken, not written.” People have been using verbal in this way since the 16th century.
This noble lineage has not deterred some language critics from insisting that verbal should only be used in the sense “by means of words” and that oral is the proper synonym for “spoken.”
The phrase modern technologies for verbal communication may refer only to devices for spoken communication such as radio, the telephone, and the loudspeaker, or it may refer to all devices for linguistic communication, including the telegraph, the teletype, and the fax machine.
