The Role of Maternal Gesturing in Conversations with One-Year-Olds.
Schnur, Elizabeth; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v11 n1 p29-41 Feb 1984
Four children were videotaped playing with their mothers, first in a situation with gestures, and then in a situation without gestures. Results showed that maternal gestures have more of a role in maintaining attention and flow of interaction for young children than they do in providing specific cues to the grammar the child is acquiring.
