Meaning of BODY LANGUAGE

Meaning of BODY LANGUAGE:

The term ‘body language’ has quickly passed into everyday use and has no strict technical usage in sociology. Generally, it refers to the idea that our bodies are expressive and that people give off signals that may or may not be in line with what they are consciously trying to communicate. There are many lay-person’s guides to body language that claim to be able to teach you how to recognise when someone is sexually attracted to you or lying, or both. Recently, conversation analysis has turned more of its attention to the co-ordination of talk and gesture, though to date, findings have been relatively limited.
