Laurence White is a lecturer in psychology of language at Plymouth University.

Why “Psychoprosody”?

Prosody is the musicality of human speech: melody, timing, rhythm, phrasing. In my research, I investigate how we use prosody to interact with each other, to understand spoken sentences and to develop social bonds.


I also write a blog about psychology more generally, the Psych Shed.
