Group processes can be viewed from two as­pects – group communication (the linguistic acts in the communication process) and the actual group dynamics present (Goldberg & Larson, 1975). While the former focuses on the com­munication process between group members, the latter examines the many behavior patterns of the interaction and interpersonal relationships between group members. Linguistic acts can be seen as a subset of group dynamics and is useful for tracing the observable patterns of the group. On the other hand, group dynamics analyzes the overall impression of the group.
