    1) to put it simply basically just a sentence written or spoken used to communicate
    2) should just be style of text (like you have arial in word etc)
    3) utterance is word or phrase .... so i assume non-verbal is either a facial expression or something spoken that isn't actually a word e.g. "ohhh"
    4) small talk used for socialising to share feelings etc but it doesn't have an informative purpose
    5) not sure sorry
    hope this helps in some way!
