Shrug! Talking About Non-Verbal Communication: A Corpus Study.
American Language Review, v3 n1 p23-26 Jan-Feb 1999
In this study, the phrase "shrug" is investigated using the Bank of English Corpus. The report is the first of three; the other two will focus on the phrases "hold one's gaze" and "touch wood." Each of these phrases relates to an aspect of communications that may hold particular difficulties for someone from another culture: gesture, eye contact, and residual superstition. (Author/VWL)
