How to Maintain Relationships with Talk

Lecture no. 6 from the course: How Conversation Works: 6 Lessons for Better Communication

How to Maintain Relationships with Talk

Taught by Professor Anne Curzan | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Look at the fascinating research on how cooperative and competitive speaking styles differ, how parents model conversation for children from infancy, how language alignment can predict relationship success, and how electronic communications follow prescribed patterns.
