    Default Non-verbal communication

    Are non-verbal communication, body language and kinesics same things? If it is required to make a relation between them can we say that one of them is the main title and the others are subtitles of them? I have asked so many questions but please help me about finding detailed information about the functions of intonation.

    Non-verbal communication is the umbrella term. Body language is one are of this.

    I agree with Red. I think the main category is "non-verbal communication. Under that should come body language and kinesics. There seems to be some overlap between the latter two terms, but there also seems to be some differences. :wink:
