This study seeks correlations between social variables and linguistic variables, including the following ten speech patterns: repetitiveness, long-windedness, drawl, charm and variability, amount of pausing, sharing of air time, tension, noisy qualities, breath control, and forcefulness. Many associations are discussed, particularly those involving societal complexity, sex roles, and singing and dancing.
