Additionally, Qur'an 47:30 says that the hypocrites could be recognized by their tone of speech (either their tone of voice, or the tone of their choice of words).

It is related on the exegesis of this verse that the Companions Abu Sa'id al-Khudri and Jabir ibn 'Abdallah al-Ansari said: 'Their tone of speech meant that they hated 'Ali ibn Abi Talib, and thereby we knew who the hypocrites were in the time of Allah's Messenger.'

Of course, the verse does not specify dislike of Imam 'Ali, but Imam 'Ali was known to be the sort of person that only a hypocrite or nefarious person would dislike.

In any case, 'tone of speech' can also be take in general to refer to other signs of hypocrisy in what they said.
