CONSIDERATIONS AND A CASE STUDY OF JAPANESE SPOKEN DISCOURSE
 John Benjamins 1993 xii, 151 Discourse

Maynard, Senko K. DISCOURSE MODALITY. SUBJECTIVITY , EMOTION AND VOICE
IN THE JAPANESE LANGUAGE
 John Benjamins 1993 x, 315 pp Discourse
 Cloth US:1 55619 292 4/EUR:90 272 5036 7 US$63.00/Hfl. 110,--
Focusing on non-propositional, i.e. the expressive and interactional,
meanings of Japanese signs, with special emphasis on understanding their
cognitive, psychological and social meanings, this study shows Japanese
to be richly featured for the expression of personal voice and emotive
nuances and confronts the theoretical issues underlying this richness.


NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION

Poyatos, Fernando PARALANGUAGE. A LINGUISTIC AND INTERDISCIPLINARY
APPROACH TO INTERACTIVE SPEECH AND SOUND
 John Benjamins 1993 xiv, 478 pp. Nonverbal Communication
 Cloth US:1 55619 149 9/EUR:90 272 3527 9 US$125.00/Hfl. 220,--
The book initially sensitizes the reader to our sound generating
movements and to all human external and environmental sounds and their
unquestionable communicative qualities. Then an anatomical-
psychological- auditory approach to voice production (identifying many
neglected articulations) is combined with the analysis of its visual
manifestations as the triple reality of speech: language-paralanguage-
kinesics).
