Nonverbal communication behaviors have been classified into the following codes: kinesics (known as body language, including eye, facial, and body movement); paralanguage or vocalics (vocalizations other than words, such as sighs and moans, vocal pitch and volume); haptics (touch); proxemics (spatial distances); chronemics (time); olfactics (smell); and artifacts (use of objects, such as jewelry) (Burgoon et al., 1989).
