Tone and Word Choice can be considered separate yet interrelated skills. Tone refers to the attitude and type of language used when communicating, which can have implications on the message’s emotion. The relationship between tone and word choice happens where a person's tone can change the perception of what the words are conveying. Word choice can shape the recipients’ perceptions of the message. Appropriate tone and word choice can be audience-specific with different perceived connotations and meanings depending on the community and culture. Understanding the impact of your tone and word choice means you are able to adjust your communication style for specific settings and audiences.
