A Gesture Inventory for the Teaching of Spanish.
Green, Jerald R.
Intended for the nonnative, audiolingual-oriented Spanish teacher, this guide discusses the role of nonverbal behavior in foreign language learning with major emphasis given to an inventory of peninsular Spanish gesture. Gestures are described in narrative with line drawings to provide visual cues, and are accompanied by illustrative selections from contemporary fictional and dramatic literature. Gestures also comprehensible to Latin Americans are started. Shorter sections discuss a research design for foreign culture kinesics and a survey of kinesic research. An English index to the gesture inventory is provided. (AF)
