Infralanguage: A Nonverbal Agent of Socialization.
Caputo, John; Cottrell, Eric
"Infralanguage," a non-verbal channel of communication, exists within daily conversation. Two divisions of "infralanguage" have been identified: the non-stated thematic, that is, themes presented in topics of discourse; and the sequence of those themes within conversation. This unspoken communication is implicit and ubiquitous in parent-child interactions as well as classroom dynamics, delivering "deafening messages" of what is important and acting as a powerful socializing agent.
