 Nonverbal communication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Such messages can be communicated through gesture; body language or posture; facial expression and eye contact; object communication such as clothing, hairstyles or even architecture; symbols and infographics; prosodic features of speech such as intonation and stress and other paralinguistic features of speech such as voice quality, emotion and speaking style
Thus, sign languages and writing are generally understood as forms of verbal communication, as both make use of words — although like speech, both may contain paralinguistic elements and often occur alongside nonverbal messages.
While much nonverbal communication is based on arbitrary symbols which differ from culture to culture, a large proportion is also to some extent iconic and may be universally understood.

 Nonverbal and verbal communication in "involved" and "casual" relationships among college students College Student ...
The focus of the current study was on the differences in nonverbal and verbal communication between partners in two categories of college students--the "involved" (emotionally involved in a reciprocal love relationship with one person) and "casually" dating (dating different people).
When students were asked "How important do you think nonverbal communication is in a relationship?" with 1 = "very important" and 10 = "not important at all" (so that the lower the score the greater the importance) the mean value of the "involved" and "casual" daters was 3.08 vs. 3.75, respectively (p<0.03).
Given that both the "involved" respondents not only value, but "work hard" as do their partners to insure congruency in nonverbal and verbal behavior and nonverbal and verbal communication, it is not surprising that they are significantly (p<0.005) "less confused than casual daters" when their partner says one thing and does another.
