Unlike any book before it, this volume embodies the state-of-the-art regarding the experimental study of human communication, by bringing together cutting edge findings from psycholinguistics, communication, cognition, neuroscience, language, and identity. Whether linguistic or nonverbal, communication poses unique computational challenges that reveal secrets of the mind/brain and social cognition unlike anything else.

This volume is both a stimulating journey for the general language/communication reader, as well as a great research tool for graduate students, advanced undergraduate students, and investigators.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This Festschrift is a fitting celebration of, and testament to, the enormous legacy of Robert Krauss's work. Written by a glittering array of associates, his work is used as a springboard to forge new ground in compelling verbal, nonverbal, and new technological domains as well as the applied interfaces between them. Cohering well, the volume provides unique theoretical structures that make it a 'must-read' across disciplines."

-Howard Giles, Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

"This outstanding collection of essays is an homage to a scholar who has dedicated his academic life to advancing our understanding of communication, cognition, language, and identity. The contributions to this volume are a testimony not only to the broad impact Bob Krauss has had in the field but also to his enormously supportive, constructive, and generous personality."

-Gun R. Semin, Ph.D., Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, Utrecht University
