Body Language Glossary of Terms

We're currently working on a comprehensive glossary of terms which will provide clear and concise information relating to all aspects of body language jargon and terminology.

Each body language term will have its own page, the links to which will be presented in alphabetical order below.

We intend to include new additions to this page on a regular basis, so keep checking back for updates.
