Abstract: The verbal content cue is one of the three deception detecting cues. There are four major models of verbal content cue: criteria-based content analysis, reality monitoring, interpersonal deception theory and verbal immediacy. The 4 models are very different in basis of theory and veracity of detecting deception. In addition, the reliability of verbal content cues are influenced by individual and social factors, such as age, social skill, culture, event familiar, interpersonal communication and interview strategy. The future studies should develop the verbal content cues by integrating models, studying active detecting skills and combining nonverbal behavior cues.

Key words: deception, detecting, verbal content cues, reliability
