Abstract and Keywords

What do our everyday words reveal about the quality and types of social processes at play in interactions? This chapter focuses on the links between function and emotion words and social behaviors. Computerized text analyses allow researchers to track social psychological processes in dyads, groups, and larger social networks. The authors review studies on experimental and naturalistic archives that reveal relationship roles, processes, and outcomes. Computer-based language analysis methods can be used to assess and track ongoing social processes on a large scale. The expansion and application of language technologies can provide real-time feedback to shape group processes as they unfold.

Keywords: Groups, language, LIWC, relationships, social interactions
