(p.45) Chapter 3 Emotional and conversational nonverbal signals
Gesture, Speech, and Sign

Paul Ekman

Oxford University Press

This chapter revises and expands formulations which distinguish among a number of different types of body movements and facial expressions. Some of the terminology and most of the conceptual distinctions have been preserved, but refinements and expansions have benefited from empirical findings and theoretical developments. The crucial issue remains to distinguish among quite different activities, which are shown in facial and/or bodily movement, but which have quite different functions, origins, and coding.

Keywords:   nonverbal signals, body movements, facial expressions, emotional signals, emblems, speech
