Speech and Gesture Integration.
NcNeill, David
New Directions for Child Development, n79 p11-27 Spr 1998
Describes conventional and nonconventional gestures, asserting they form an integrated system with language but on different levels, working together to produce a web of visuo-spatial expression surrounding linear speech products. Conventional gestures can be loosely bound temporally with speech but require across-context codes; nonconventional gestures, shaped by contextual details, are different depending on demands and potentialities of speaker's language.
