Abstract:
			
The following title in the field of Nonverbal Communication is now
available for John Benjamins Publishing: 
Nonverbal Communication across Disciplines, Volume 1: Culture, sensory
interaction, speech, conversation by Fernando Poyatos 

In a progressive and systematic approach to communication, and always
through an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective, this
first volume presents culture as an intricate grid of sensible and
intelligible sign systems in space and time, identifying the semiotic
and interactive problems inherent in intercultural and subcultural
communication according to verbal-nonverbal cultural fluency. The
author lays out fascinating complexity of our direct and synesthesial
sensory perception of people and artifactual and environmental
elements; and its audible and visual manifestations through our
"speaking face", to then acknowledge the triple reality
of discourse as "verbal language-paralanguage-kinesics",
which is applied through two realistic models: (a)for a verbal-nonverbal
comprehensive transcription of interactive speech, and (b)for the
implementation of nonverbal communication in foreign-language
teaching. The author presents his exhaustive model of "nonverbal
categories" for a detailed analysis of normal or pathological
behaviors in any interactive or noninteractive manifestation; and,
based on all the previous material, his equally exhaustive structural
model for the study of conversational encounters, which suggests many
applications in different fields, such as the intercultural and
multisystem communication situation developed in simultaneous or
consecutive interpretating. 
956 literary quotations from 103
authors and 194 works illustrate all the points discussed.
