ABSTRACT. Nonverbal language has its own epistemological framework where the message is empirically investigated in its essence. A study showed as the 7% of the message content is given by the meaning of the words, the 38% by the tones of the voice and the 55% by facial expressions and body movements or kinaesthesia. Communication is the foundation of sociability and socialization, as implies cooperation, exchange of roles (transmitter / receiver), a code-sharing and the sharing of a context and a channel. Communication is sociability because it consists of several behaviours that help socialization through the constant exchange among individuals, called intersubjectivity, to construct the meanings. pp. 34–40
