NVC: “Nonlinguistic (involving neither written nor spoken language) behavior that creates meaning for someone”(BBR).
- Emblems … can be used to replace words, direct verbal translation
- Illustrators … accompany and clarify spoken word
- Affect displays … movement of face, etc… show emotion
- Regulators ... movements which encourage or discourage further communication … “traffic cops” of conversation
- Adaptors … movements to satisfy physical or psychological discomfort
Which more universal? Why more culturally relative?
