Symbolic Gesturing in Normal Infants.
Acredolo, Linda; Goodwyn, Susan
Child Development, v59 n2 p450-66 Apr 1988
Two studies are presented that document the spontaneous development by normal infants of nonverbal gestures to symbolically represent objects, needs, states, and qualities. These gestures are shown to be a typical phenomenon of early development and to function in ways similar to early verbal symbols. (PCB)
