Human Smiles: Expression of Emotion or Communication Gesture?
Unformatted Document Text:  Kurylo & Frank Smiles and Communication 21 with an insight into the evolution of human communication systems not obtainable with other methods. Either way, these findings suggest that more research needs to be conducted in this area to explore the interconnections between enjoyment smiles and nonenjoyment smiles and their effects on communication and interactional outcomes. Planalp (1999) began her review of four books on communication and emotion by aptly saying, “Emotion plays a bigger part in communicative processes than you would ever know from reading the communication research literature” (p. 216). This comment has been echoed by others who have called for more attention to be given to the role emotion plays in communication processes (Burleson & Planalp, 2000; Dillard & Wilson, 2001). We agree entirely with these thoughts, and feel that only by first acknowledging a role for biology in communication, and then by making close observations of communicative behavior under different social conditions, can we begin to more completely understand the role of emotion and emotion expression in human communication.

with an insight into the evolution of human communication systems not obtainable with
other methods.
Either way, these findings suggest that more research needs to be conducted in
this area to explore the interconnections between enjoyment smiles and nonenjoyment
smiles and their effects on communication and interactional outcomes. Planalp (1999)
began her review of four books on communication and emotion by aptly saying,
“Emotion plays a bigger part in communicative processes than you would ever know
from reading the communication research literature” (p. 216). This comment has been
echoed by others who have called for more attention to be given to the role emotion plays
in communication processes (Burleson & Planalp, 2000; Dillard & Wilson, 2001). We
agree entirely with these thoughts, and feel that only by first acknowledging a role for
biology in communication, and then by making close observations of communicative
behavior under different social conditions, can we begin to more completely understand
the role of emotion and emotion expression in human communication.
