Speech Plus

Speech Plus

A form of expression in which behavior is used by itself or in coordination with written or spoken words to convey an idea or message.

Speech plus, which is known as Symbolic Speech, involves the communication of ideas through the combination of language and action—such as the burning of a draft card while stating opposition to the military—as opposed to pure speech, which involves the use of written or oral words alone. Like any other mode of expression, speech plus may be entitled to protection from interference by the government pursuant to the guarantee of the First Amendment to the Constitution, depending upon the nature of the expression, the circumstances in which it is expressed, and the danger it poses to society. Speech plus is often called speech plus conduct.


Freedom of Speech.
