Gesture and the Process of Speech Production: We Think, Therefore We Gesture.
Alibali, Martha W.; Kita, Sotaro; Young, Amanda J.
Language and Cognitive Processes, v15 n6 p593-613 Dec 2000
Tests two accounts of the role of gesture in speaking. Specifically, the study seeks to establish whether gesture is involved in the conceptual planning of messages, or whether it is involved only in the generation of the surface forms of utterances. To accomplish this goal, two tasks were developed that elicit comparable utterances but make different demands on conceptual packaging of spatial information. (Author/VWL)
