    Abstract

    distinguishes between vocal cues that impart meaning to the verbal message, those that regulate the flow of verbal interaction between the participants, and those that are expressive of the speaker's background, his or her affective states, his or her attitudes and feelings toward the person being addressed, and of speech production and information processing / it is this third category of vocal cues with which the chapter is most concerned

    the second part is an historical and critical review of "personality and speech" research

    the third part of the chapter deals extensively with the effects of anxiety, and . . . with the effects of depression, anger, and hostility, on some vocal parameters of speech

    the fourth part summarizes studies about how the relationship between two or more communicants is expressed in the vocal channel

    in the fifth and last part, Siegman cites numerous studies that demonstrate that most . . . of the vocal indices . . . that have been identified as vocal correlates of affective experiences, are also affected by speech production and other cognitive processes (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
