Cohesion is heard and seen: A crosslinguistic study of gesture articulation in sustained discourse

Project Details

Layman's description

Language use is embodied. The entities and events we talk about are also instantiated in co-speech gestures. This study examines how discourse cohesion is established in gestures, focusing on recurring articulatory gesture features across different syntactic structures, in two genres (narratives, instructions), and in two different languages (Dutch, Italian).
