Touch. Talking About Non-Verbal Communication: A Corpus Study.
Guo, Xiaotian
American Language Review, v3 n3 p27-29 May-Jun 1999
Presents the third and final report of an analysis of nonverbal communication. In this report, the phrase "touch wood" is investigated using the Bank of English Corpus. The first two phrases examined were "shrug" and "hold one's gaze." Each of these phrases relates to an aspect of communication that may hold particular difficulties for someone from another culture: gesture, eye contact, and residual superstition (Author/VWL)
