6) Pragmatic

Pragmatics is more than just the intentional use of language to communicate with others. It involves coordinating linguistic information with nonverbal cues such as gestures, facial expressions, and body language. It also requires taking into account the social, physical, and emotional context of a conversation to determine what to say, how to say it, and understand the meaning behind others’ words. In addition, pragmatics involves integrating current conversation with past experiences and knowledge.

Children develop these communication skills even before they fully acquire language, relying on nonverbal cues and situational context. To become proficient in pragmatics, individuals need memory skills, a deep understanding of social and physical environments, and the ability to process information from various sources and plan goal-oriented actions.
