  • Vocalics

    The communication style which uses tone of voice and non-word sounds as symbols.

  • Repartee

    Literally a form of quick wit; in communication style, a short turn- taking, "back and forth" style of conversation (as opposed to a long-turn taking style).

  • Turn-Taking/Interruption

    The pattern of conversation assumed to be proper in a culture, ranging from rapid exchange of statements and permissibility of interrupting another's speech, to long declarative statements by one speaker which must be completed before another is "allowed" to speak.
