Emotions are part and parcel of humans' lives and very often determine their behavior. The important means of expressing emotions are through unarticulated sounds, such as a cry, laugh, sob, cough, sigh, grunt, moan, whistle and many others. The author of the article describes the communicative properties and functions of these kinds of sound signals and shows how they are used in the English discourse reflected in imaginative writing.
Key words: communication, paralanguage, unarticulated sounds, discourse, emotives, nonverbal means of communication.
