Paralanguage

Instructions: "Paralanguage" is made of sounds that sometimes do not have a written form (e.g., uh-huh means Yes or I'm listening to you). Listen to each sound by clicking the "PLAY" link and choose the best sentence that would follow the sound (for example, you might say "Uh-huh, I'm going to the party too"). Press the "Final Score" button at the bottom of the page to score your quiz.
