Gesture and Sign.
Marschark, Marc
Applied Psycholinguistics, v15 n2 p209-36 Jun 1994
Because the relationship of gesticulation to sign language has not received much research attention, this study considers gesture and sign among users of signed and oral languages. Results suggest that gestures produced by deaf individuals can be distinguished from the sign language in which they are embedded, including their semantic and pragmatic functions.
