Though basic emotions such as amusement, anger, fear and sadness are not always expressed the same way in every culture, some are universally recognizable. The researchers investigated whether the sounds associated with basic emotions are the same in different cultures. Two different types of emotion- related sounds, such as laughter or crying. People seemed to find the basic emotions- anger, fear, disgust, amusement, sadness, and surprise the most easily recognizable. Laughter is universally associated with being tickled and reflects the feeling of enjoyment of physical play.
