NLP and Behavioural Science

What can we learn from the language people use?
Can words reveal something more about our true nature?

Language is intrinsically linked to behaviour. It reveals what we know, how we think and feel, is a precursor to many of the actions that we take.

New approaches to language analysis provide powerful ways to better understand behavior. Researchers at Warwick have strived to understand how language develops in children and young adults, how language interacts with memory, how it links and explains personality and behaviour, and how it can be measured and used to understand key areas of behavioural science such as predicting wellbeing and violence, persuasion and influence, and age-related cognitive decline.
