A new study identifies a distinct facial expression for disapproval that’s universal, and probably predates language. “Not face” combines the furrowed brows of anger, the raised chin of disgust, and the pursed lips of contempt to create an unmistakable look that says, “I don’t agree,” in pretty much any language — including sign language.
