This work aims at using a free labeling method as a reliable way to show
the complexity of the concepts induced in
listeners by audiovisual prosodic attitude performances in French.
was conducted on 16 French social affective expressions in audiovisual
context. 27 native French listeners participated in the experiment. Subjects were asked
to write down one word that best describes the expression of each stimulus.
Results show that among these 16 communication situations, listeners are able to
find consistent labels to name the expressivity and form coherent clusters,
as far as the intended expression is concerned.
