Clinical Linguistics & Phonetics, v22 n10-11 p775-782 Oct 2008
As a follow-up to previous research, this report focuses on the wide range of gestures employed by an individual with aphasia to overcome instances of unintelligibility and re-establish intelligibility. The gestures observed are woven seamlessly into the fabric of the interactions and range from deictic to metaphorical or symbolic in nature. Specific examples are provided.
