Observe/cite at least 7 different examples of various types of body movements that convey a variety of meanings, including power, liking, emotion, and other symbolic meanings. How do the body movements regulate interaction? If you cannot "see" these body movements, "do" them and observe how effectively people interpret your behavior. Topic 4 PARALANGUAGE/VOICE Involve yourself in a conversation with someone outside of your group. (Note: You may want to come up with a bogus survey question in order to strike up a conversation.) During the conversation, utilize various vocal cues to regulate or structure the interaction. For example, ascending or descending pitch or volume, silence, stutter-starts, nonfluencies, etc. Note: A stutter-start is defined as the pronunciation of a word with a repetition of the first sound (e.g., “sssssure”). Stutter -starts help to get control of conversation. Note 2: Nonfluencies are defined as vocal behaviors that interrupt or disturb the flow of messages (e.g., “uh,” “you know”). Observe how efficient these cues are for regulating the flow of conversation in the manner you desire. Was the person able to accurately interpret your cues?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
