The present study investigates the vocal expression of emotions in Korean and the perception of the emotions by Korean, American, and French listeners. The emotions were taken from spontaneous speech of three female Koreans. The listeners rated the emotionality on the scales of emotional valence and activation. The results showed that the listeners agreed on the global emotional perception. However, they differed in the subtle distinction of emotionality of the speakers, due the different use of lexical, cultural, and acoustical information.
