    You can't have a conversation without speaking?

    That is right. How do we differentiate them though. Tell me more about it please.

    Re: Interaction & Conversation difference

    Here's a definition:

    interaction /ˌɪntərˈŠkʃən/n
    • a mutual or reciprocal action or influence
    • the transfer of energy between elementary particles, between a particle and a field, or between fields

    (Collins)

    There's nothing in there about speaking. A conversation involves talking.
