Abstract:

The modern concept of multimodality envisages diversity (multiplicity) in the presentation of information channels (auditory and visual) in communication. This fact presents multiple opportunities for a simultaneous and multidimensional interpretation of the variability in an individual’s speech in different types of discourse, which could potentially lead to a cross-modal research approach in the future. Multimodal oral discourse (sounding speech) is characterized by a segmental (verbal) component and a multitude of non-segmental (paraverbal, prosodic) parameters which supplement the verbal component in real-time use. The visual channel, on the other hand, contains a series of extraverbal elements that complement and refine the information conveyed.
