Voice in Social Interaction

An Interdisciplinary Approach

by Pittam, Jeff

The study of voice provides us with important insights into human social interaction. This volume brings together the many interdisciplinary perspectives on voice - from acoustic phonetics to voice pathology, from the history of vocal function to social psychology - and defines them within the context of social interaction. The author also develops a theoretical taxonomy that explains vocal function based on a number of functional models of nonverbal communication, social psychology, linguistics and communication studies.
