Context and Second-Language Development: Preschoolers' Comprehension of Gestures.
Mohan, Bernard; Helmer, Sylvia
Applied Linguistics, v9 n3 p275-92 Sep 1988
Investigation of preschoolers' (20 native and 20 non-native English speakers) understanding of English speakers' gestures found that the subjects understood about half of all the gestures, with non-native subjects understanding less than native subjects. Level of comprehension was affected by age as well as by cultural familiarity. (Author/CB)
