Description :


This work combines interdisciplinary knowledge and experience from research fields of psychology, linguistics, audio-processing, machine learning, and computer science. The work systematically explores a novel research topic devoted to automated modeling of personality expression from speech. For this aim, it introduces a novel personality assessment questionnaire and presents the results of extensive labeling sessions to annotate the speech data with personality assessments. It provides estimates of the Big 5 personality traits, i.e. openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Based on a database built on the questionnaire, the book presents models to tell apart different personality types or classes from speech automatically.

Description :


This book explores the various categories of speech variation and works to draw a line between linguistic and paralinguistic phenomenon of speech. Paralinguistic contrast is crucial to human speech but has proven to be one of the most difficult tasks in speech systems. In the quest for solutions to speech technology and sciences, this book narrows down the gap between speech technologists and phoneticians and emphasizes the imperative efforts required to accomplish the goal of paralinguistic control in speech technology applications and the acute need for a multidisciplinary categorization system. This interdisciplinary work on paralanguage will not only serve as a source of information but also a theoretical model for linguists, sociologists, psychologists, phoneticians and speech researchers.

Description :


This book presents the methods, tools and techniques that arecurrently being used to recognise (automatically) the affect,emotion, personality and everything else beyond linguistics(‘paralinguistics’) expressed by or embedded in humanspeech and language. It is the first book to provide such a systematic survey ofparalinguistics in speech and language processing. The technologydescribed has evolved mainly from automatic speech and speakerrecognition and processing, but also takes into account recentdevelopments within speech signal processing, machine intelligenceand data mining. Moreover, the book offers a hands-on approach by integratingactual data sets, software, and open-source utilities which willmake the book invaluable as a teaching tool and similarly usefulfor those professionals already in the field. Key features: Provides an integrated presentation of basic research (inphonetics/linguistics and humanities) with state-of-the-artengineering approaches for speech signal processing and machineintelligence. Explains the history and state of the art of all of thesub-fields which contribute to the topic of computationalparalinguistics. C overs the signal processing and machine learning aspects ofthe actual computational modelling of emotion and personality andexplains the detection process from corpus collection to featureextraction and from model testing to system integration. Details aspects of real-world system integration includingdistribution, weakly supervised learning and confidencemeasures. Outlines machine learning approaches including static, dynamicand context‑sensitive algorithms for classification andregression. Includes a tutorial on freely available toolkits, such as theopen-source ‘openEAR’ toolkit for emotion and affectrecognition co-developed by one of the authors, and a listing ofstandard databases and feature sets used in the field to allow forimmediate experimentation enabling the reader to build an emotiondetection model on an existing corpus.

Description :


Nick Morgan shows how anyone can be an effective speaker by presenting an image of authenticity and respect for their audience, whether in a group presentation or a one-on-one conversation. He presents a four-step process, perfected in his teaching at Harvard, that enables the reader to use their own personal speaking style while becoming a more persuasive and charismatic communicator and leader. The basis of this process is the fact that when words and body language are in conflict, body language wins every time. This isn't easy to overcome, because normally body language is immediate, while the words lag slightly behind, and even a momentary conflict is perceptible to the audience. The key to success is to train your body language to unconsciously align with your message. The four steps: Form the attitude and intent to be open, and then let your body naturally express that intent. This feeling of openness will naturally affect the content of what you are saying, and it's that natural evolution that is at the heart of the process. Become connected to your audience. This creates a mutual energy, and you will naturally begin to think in terms of what the audience wants and needs in shaping your content. Ask yourself, what's my underlying emotion? Why does this matter to me? Becoming passionate about what you have to say naturally makes your audience care about it too. Really listen to the audience. Understanding their needs and reactions will enable you to direct your communication in mutually beneficial ways.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1921 edition. Excerpt: ... chapter xh some common faults and their correction no book, however elementary or however short, dealing with speech matters, would be complete without some discussion on some of the most popular errors of speech. One must know what to do, but one must also know what to avoid. Again one is at a disadvantage, in that custom stales the ear to the recognition of errors which are part of the local speech of one's home community. Careful examination and comparison with good forms of speech will disclose anything that may be incorrect, as well as provide a pattern on which to base reconstruction work. "Out of the fulness of the heart the mouth speaketh," but not very successfully unless the head also be full. All progressive schools are now grading pupils much more frequently as the result of the Simon Binet psychology tests, than through the old style examination method. These tests are very varied, covering all phases of the process of thought. It is significant, therefore, that if there is not time, for any reason, for a complete analysis of a subject, or time for only one specific medium for analysis, the vocabulary test is invariably the medium chosen. It is not the spelling of the word which is required--that is relatively unimportant--but the ability to understand and to explain the meaning of the word. The mental age and development is judged by the number of words in a given list which the subject can explain the meaning of, and possibly form sentences in which such words occur, demonstrating their proper use. If this knowledge of words--spoken sound--is so important that it can be used as a basis on which to calculate the mental age of a person, then surely the study of such words is also highly important. A large vocabulary means

"Traditionally, scientists have emphasized what they call the first and second natures of personality--genes and culture, respectively. But today the field of personality science has moved well beyond the nature vs. nurture debate. In Who Are You, Really? Dr. Brian Little presents a distinctive view of how personality shapes our lives--and why this matters. Little makes the case for a third nature to the human condition--the pursuit of personal projects, idealistic dreams, and creative ventures that shape both people's lives and their personalities. Little uncovers what personality science has been discovering about the role of personal projects, revealing how this new concept can help people better understand themselves and shape their lives" -- provided by publisher.

Description :


A surprising and entertaining explanation of how the words we use (even the ones we don't notice) reveal our personalities, emotions, and identities. We spend our lives communicating. In the last fifty years, we've zoomed through radically different forms of communication, from typewriters to tablet computers, text messages to tweets. We generate more and more words with each passing day. Hiding in that deluge of language are amazing insights into who we are, how we think, and what we feel. In The Secret Life of Pronouns, social psychologist and language expert James W. Pennebaker uses his groundbreaking research in computational linguistics-in essence, counting the frequency of words we use-to show that our language carries secrets about our feelings, our self-concept, and our social intelligence. Our most forgettable words, such as pronouns and prepositions, can be the most revealing: their patterns are as distinctive as fingerprints. Using innovative analytic techniques, Pennebaker X-rays everything from Craigslist advertisements to the Federalist Papers-or your own writing, in quizzes you can take yourself-to yield unexpected insights. Who would have predicted that the high school student who uses too many verbs in her college admissions essay is likely to make lower grades in college? Or that a world leader's use of pronouns could reliably presage whether he led his country into war? You'll learn why it's bad when politicians use "we" instead of "I," what Lady Gaga and William Butler Yeats have in common, and how Ebenezer Scrooge's syntax hints at his self-deception and repressed emotion. Barack Obama, Sylvia Plath, and King Lear are among the figures who make cameo appearances in this sprightly, surprising tour of what our words are saying-whether we mean them to or not.

Description :


Much of what we say is never said aloud. It occurs only silently, as inner speech. We chastise, congratulate, joke, and generate endless commentary, all without making a sound. This distinctively human ability to create public language in the privacy of our own minds-to, in a sense, "hear" ourselves talking when no one else can-is no less remarkable for its familiarity. And yet, until recently, inner speech remained at the periphery of philosophical and psychological theorizing. This volume, comprised of chapters written by an interdisciplinary group of leading philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists, displays the rapidly growing interest among researchers in the puzzles surrounding the nature and cognitive role of the inner voice. Questions explored include: the aids and obstacles inner speech presents to self-knowledge; the complex relation it bears to overt speech production and perception; the means by which inner speech can be identified and empirically assessed; its role in generating auditory verbal hallucinations; and its relationship to conceptual thought itself.
