Nonverbal emotional vocalizations

Nonverbal vocalizations of emotions include sounds like laughter, screams, and sighs.

Validated sets of vocalizations from the UK, Namibia, and the Netherlands (anger, fear, disgust, sadness, surprise, amusement, triumph, relief, and surprise), and the US (anger, contempt, disgust, embarrassment, fear, guilt, sadness, shame, surprise, amusement, awe, compassion, contentment, desire, enthusiasm, gratitude, interest, love, pride, relief, sensory pleasure, and triumph) are available.

Laughter clips from France, the UK, Japan, the Netherlands, the US, and Namibia are also available.

These stimuli are freely available to investigators for use in scientific research, but no commercial use is permitted. If you would like to use nonverbal vocalizations of emotion in your research, get in touch with  Dr Disa Sauter.
