Bimodal narratives: crosslinguistic perspectives on the interplay between speech and gesture in narrative discourse.

Project: ResearchIndividual research project

Layman's description

Some studies suggest that different kinds of gestures are functionally distributed in a narrative. Yet, little evidence is provided to support this claim. This study
aims at analyzing gestural production relative to narrative structure in narratives by Italian speakers (proverbially known for gesturing a lot), and by Swedish speakers (generally described as less prone to use bodily movements).
