Interactive map of grunts, groans, sighs and other sounds

A surprisingly vocal map of human sounds and emotions now exists online. This map is not a geographical map, it is a noisy map:

The map, and the whats and wheres of it, get a detailed description in the study “Mapping 24 emotions conveyed by brief human vocalization,” Alan S. Cowen, Hillary Anger Elfenbein, Petri Laukka, and Dacher Keltner, American Psychologist, epub 2018.

The Linguistic Society of America has a seemingly lengthy writeup about it, including lots of words but no actual sounds.

Open Culture has a nice writeup about it, including a nice picture of the map, unremarkably similar to the map you see here.
