Abstract:
			
John Benjamins Publishing would like to announce the publication of
the following title in the field of Nonverbal
Communication: Nonverbal Communication across
Disciplines, Volume 2: Paralanguage, kinesics, silence, personal and
environmental interaction by Fernando Poyatos, University of New
Brunswick

Paralanguage and kinesics define the tripartite nature of
speech. Volume II builds on Poyatos' book Paralanguage
(1993)--reviewed by Mary Key as "the most amplified description of
paralanguage available today". It covers our basic voice components;
the many normal or abnormal voice types; the communicative uses of
physiological and emotional reactions like laughter, crying, sighing,
coughing, sneezing, etc.; and word-like utterances beyond the official
dictionary. Kinesics is viewed from interactive, intercultural and
cross-cultural, and literary perspectives, with much needed research
principles for the realistic study of gestures, manners and postures
in their intersystemic links. Applications are given in the social or
clinical sciences, intercultural communication, literature, painting,
theater and cinema, etc. Related to both paralanguage and kinesics are
the many eloquent sounds produced bodily, by manipulated objects and
by the environment. A discussion of silence and stillness as opposed
to sound and movement and related to darkness and light, shows their
true interactive status, coding, functions, qualifiers, intersystemic
co-structurations, positive and negative functions, and cross-cultural
attitudes toward silence. The first two volumes are then brought
together in a detailed model for studying our interactions with people
and the environment, including certain emitting and transmitting
congenital or traumatic limitations. 1608 quotations from 133 authors
and 216 works vividly illustrate all topics.
