About the Authors
  • This landmark study examines the role of gestures in relation to speech and thought. Leading scholars, including psychologists, linguists and anthropologists, offer state-of-the-art analyses to demonstrate that gestures are not merely an embellishment of speech but are integral parts of language itself. The volume contributes to a rapidly growing field of study, offering a wide range of theoretical perspectives. It has strong cross-linguistic and cross-cultural components, examining gestures by speakers of Mayan, Australian, East Asian, as well as English and European languages.

    • Landmark study in a growing field offering state-of-the-art analyses of gesture in relation to speech and thought
    • Spans three disciplines - psychology, anthropology and linguistics
    • Authors are leading scholars
