- , actually it's undetermined, unless you can bring some sort of proof besides "urban myth. not true" to the table. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:42, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Varies between cultures?
The appearance of a frown varies from culture to culture.
Is this line true? I have heard that in his book, The Expressions of the Emotions, that Darwin had asked people from different cultures what emotion was being expressed in various photos, and that (I would say predictably) facial expressions were interpreted in the same way across cultures, and that this also included frowning. Unfortunately I don't have my copy of Expressions with me, and a quick search online doesn't seem to show up much new research about frowning, though apparently Darwin claimed that chimpanzees do not frown, and that it seems to be a uniquely human expression.

I think it's true. From personal experience, if you ask an English person to frown, they will wrinkle their brow and look "angry" whereas in North America, apparently, a frown can also be a "sad" ): as well as an "angry" |:< expression. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:38, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
