20 Mar expressiveness

Expressiveness is a measure of the degree to which artwork or language or a performance reaches the intended audience. In art, expressiveness does not always reflect a meeting of minds in that audiences can interpret the expressive art in any way. In language, however, success in conveying and interpreting the same thing is critical. Humor is an expressive form of language art in which the interpreter is often asked to discern multiple meanings in a single utterance.
