Abstract: Smiling is a visible expression and it has been shown that it is audible too. The aim of this paper is to investigate the perception of the prosody of smile in 2 different languages. In order to elicitate smiled speech, 6 speakers of Québec French were required to read sentences displayed with or without caricatures. The sentences produced were used as stimuli for a perception test administered to 10 listeners of Québec French and 10 listeners of German who had no knowledge of French. Results suggest that some prosodic cues are universals and others are culture specific.
