Paralanguage is the area of non-

verbal communication
that emphasizes body language and
voice as means of expressing
thoughts and feelings

Kathleen k. Reardon (1987)


 Body language is a type of nonverbal
communication. In body language, the
feelings and intentions are consciously or
unconsciously expressed by physical behavior
as gestures, body posture, eye movement,
and facial expressions.

 Frank .E.X (1976)


 Paralanguage is also a feature of nonverbal
communication where meaning is derived
from an individual’s tone, pitch, volume,
intonation, nonverbal components of speech
such as speech speed, pitch of voice, tone,
volume, modulation, inflection, accent, and
accentuation are observed to understand the
emotions conveyed through them

 . People normally use paralanguage multiple
times per day and are sometimes not even aware
they are doing so. The ability to interpret this
kind of human communication correctly is
considered an important competency in both
personal and professional settings. Body
language often conveys just as much meaning as
spoken words. Good communicators also have
the ability to gauge how their own paralanguage
affects others and to alter it so as to gain others'
trust and to project confidence.
 Carl E Larson (1976)
