Auditory-Perceptual Recognition of the Emotional State of Aggression

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNAI,volume 9319)

Abstract

The authors propose several stages to research verbal-cognitive mechanisms regarding the formation and development of verbal realization of the emotional state of aggression. This paper describes an experimental study which investigates the auditory-perceptual analysis of male scenic speech experiencing the emotional state of aggression (for Russian, English, Spanish and Tatar languages). The results statistically confirm the detected auditory-perceptual “passports” of the emotional state of aggression and demonstrate differences in auditory perception of verbal aggressive behavior by groups of male and female listeners.

Notes

  1. 1.

    Results of previous stages of the survey see in [7, 8]. Results of acoustic analysis see in [10]. For more details about auditory-perceptual method regarding audio-visual analysis of emotional foreign speakers speech see [11].

    Phonograms are taken out of the data base of recordings of modern authentic scenic speech in Russian, English, Spanish and Tatar languages in conditions of family violence, criminal behavior, and corporative conflicts (author L.R. Komalova 2013). Each sample is a fragment of sound-tracks from a movie or TV-series without visual support, accompanied with script of actors speech; playing time varies from 10 to 90 s. The database consists of samples of male and female speeches: monologues, dialogues and polylogues.
