We define here communication theory as the simplest abstract concept of a description of communicative processes serving as an explication for this phenomenon. To describe these processes we will use the term 'state'. The term general communication theory is used here to emphasize that communication is not related to a specific field - it is neither a purely linguistic nor a 'real world' phenomenon. (The contemporary contribution and segmentation of field of communication gives us the impression of specific fields and sub-fields of communication). Functional theory means here that we are interested in the functions that entities have, when participating in a communication and enable all communicators to make a communication process.
