Speech and writing are the two skills of a language. The


sounds of speech arid
the letters of writing are in themselves meaningless, but they are
combined
according to the underlying system of language to convey
specific meaning and
perform specific functions' As skills speech and rvriting
are concrete, whereas
the underlying system of language is abstract. ln terms of physical
features,
speech consists of sounds that are perceived by the ear
and is therefore
ephemeral, whereas writing consists of marks on a surface
that are per.ceived by
the eye and is therefore permanent. Though speech and rvriting
function
independeltly as media of language, it is porribl. to transfer
speech into
writing and vice versa, because writing is a symbolic representation
of speech.
