When your angry, sad, happy, etc. Do you notice a change in your use of diction and overall tone?

For example: If you are angry, do you speak softly or do you speak loudly? Do you use words that are more colloquial or words that are more formal? How does tone and wording change when you are experiencing different emotions?

Of course. Im pretty sure emotions dictate most people speech and tones.

When I'm annoyed I tend to slip into my country accent, and when I'm pissed I tend to lose verbal faculties.

When I'm angry I actually tend to speak softer in a subconscious attempt to calm myself down before I do any real damage. When I'm happy I'm fairly loud because I'm in a good mood and excited and stuff. When I'm sad I tend to flat out not speak at all to avoid crying.

As for wording, when I'm angry I definitely stumble over everything (the embodiment of the "spluttering angrily" trope), when I'm happy I... still stumble over everything lmao because I stutter a bunch in general, and when I'm sad I don't speak at all. Or try not to, anyway.

I'd say yes. I try to stay composed but emoutions can absolutley effect that. Plus alcohol can amplify emoutions.
Some of my angry or trollsih posts on this very site have been fuled by alcohol. It can make me drift a little form my usual calm and open minded self.
But as far as actual speech, yeah when iam angry i will cuss alot more and speak more aggressivley and loudly.

When I'm happy, my speech would affect others in a postive way.

Ohh yes. Right now, my speech is very pessimistic, serious, logical and cynical. Like I'm angry at something and want to get rid of it in the best way possible, but will settle with any.

Normally it's pretty relaxed, scattered and has a couple of jokes in it. But not when I'm serious. And I'm only serious when I'm angry and want something done about something. Be it idiot classmates in a group project, or parasitic bedbugs, and all the legal, moral, and economical bullshit that comes with them and being poor. If I was rich(er), I'd just pay a pest control guy, and have them cook them out of my apartment, and everyone else's for safe measure. It's certainly the easiest solution.

But nope, I'm poor, and my landlord is a scumbag who won't pay to fix the stitch in time before it becomes 9, all because I have to prove it wasn't my fault, and that at the very least, it was someone else. Well I certainly wasn't hanging out with anyone who had them, nor randomly digging though potentially infested items or even really going outside to catch them... But I can't prove that, because we still associate bedbugs with most other pest's behavior patterns, and that if you get them, it was your fault for leaving food and shelter out for them. If this does spread to other apartments because I'm struggling to get rid of them, I will go all or nothing and sue the daylights out of my landlord.

Guhh, the worst part is, we are all hung up over who to blame and who has to fix it, that we all miss the big picture that the bugs themselves are to blame. I have no idea who started the problem. But it is currently MY problem, and I will be the SOLUTION, by ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

So yes, my pattern of speech, as well as my typing pattern change with my mode. I just typed the above as an example of how it is like. Basically, I'm an asshole when I'm tired, cranky, and frustrated, and so are 90% of people.

My tone stays the same regardless of my emotions. I only change volume when stressing words for effect/emphasis or when I'm sick. I never saw much point in letting my emotions dictate my thoughts or actions. In spoken verse, my verbiage isn't as drawn out (in contrast to forums). Due to the people that I'm generally around most of the time, my vocabulary tends to lend itself to more academic/methodical in-person.
