I disagree with the authors perception that an idea can be effectively communicated through images only and not by language.
Language is very much important for better understanding and images can only aggrandize the understanding of the language.
Language is a very important means of communication. Language is the one that distinguishes humans from animals. It is through language one communicates his/her ideas to the other person. Its the medium through which one expresses his/her feelings for someone.
Using images can enhance the listener understanding of the speaker feelings. For example, if we tell someone that earth revolves around the sun and as well it rotates about itself, one might be confused listening to this, because sometimes people find it difficult to imagine a few things. So if we show them a images of the same, it is easily understood by them.
There are also very fare chances for the audience to misunderstand the speaker, if we are just using the images and not the language. Because images could give the audience the picture of what the speaker is talking about, but his perception of the idea could only be understood only if the speaker uses language.
Once in a class, a teacher showed a picture to students, and asked them what can they see in the picture. A few students answered “a beautiful young lady” and a few said “a old woman”. The students were confused when the teacher said both were right. This is because the picture has both old lady as well as the young lady. So language is very important though images can make it more effective.
To conclude, using images to communicate an idea makes it easier for the audience to get the picture of what the speaker is trying to deliver, but its not the only effective way and language is very much necessary to understand the speakers/writers perception.
