Mastering the non-verbal voice

Interview with Professor Silke Paulmann

Professor Silke Paulmann TalkWise Podcast



Episode Description

“The important thing to remember is that non verbal acoustic cues serve emotional, attitudinal and social, as well as linguistic, functions; they affect our way of interpreting what people are saying and they affect how we react.”

Tone of voice can have even more impact than the words we use. Having a deeper appreciation not just of what is said but of how it is being said is a vital aspect of becoming a better communicator, in expressing ourselves and in hearing others. In this episode of the podcast we interview linguistics researcher Professor Silke Paulmann and discuss how tone and other non-verbal factors affect how we interpret, and are interpreted by, others.
