Paragraph of analysis on speech

You can tell more about someone from how they speak then what they say.

The most important factor with spoken language is not the words that someone says but how those certain words are spoken. Expression in the voice gives a massive insight into what a person is like, how they act, and what they think of someone else or something that has happened. For example if the word ‘hello’ can be said in multiple different ways and mean completely different things. If the word is said in a sarcastic tone then it can give the impression that a person is not actually pleased to see someone. Alternatively if ‘hello’ is said with a rising terminal inflection it can imply that the speaker is interested in the matter. To imply that someone is interested in something, would be more natural then stating it, so showing not telling the person. Something can mean the absolute opposite to what is said by the tone of a voice.
