Abstract

Communication between people is full of non-verbal signs. It is certain that without them communication would be much more poor and incomplete, less expressive and didn't notify about emotions and attitudes of participants in the communication process. Non-verbal communication includes speech and non-speech aspects of behavior which happens in social interaction. The main function of language is transferring abstract ideas while non-verbal communication expresses emotional conditions and attitudes and also regulates interpersonal interaction. In a continuous human communication from prehistoric times until today exists non-verbal signs and they are used to describe people and their experience. In non-verbal communication, paralinguistic signs take a special place. They give expressiveness and vividness to speech, and they can contribute to complete expression and better understanding meanings of speech. Without these elements, our speech would be monotonous and often less understandable.
