Abstract

Communication involves both verbal and nonverbal means to ensure a message is conveyed. Facial expression is acknowledged in contemporary views as one the most influential factors in non-verbal communication. This study investigates the use of the Facial Analysis Coding System (FACS) as a tool that can improve researchers’ skills in reading the emotions of others to analyse data other than depending merely on the spoken language.
