|Meeting Description:||From Sound to Gesture (S2G)
Communication as speech, prosody, gestures and signs
Understanding how human communication works requires investigating the complex relations between abstract representations of both sounds and
gestures and their concrete realizations. The study of both spoken and signed language can provide a key to understanding the fascinating
connections between human sounds, gestures and language.
The aim of this conference is to bring together scholars interested in the relationships between different modalities (acoustic, visual) and between
different levels within the same modality (e.g., phonology-phonetics, verbal-nonverbal, prosodic-segmental, etc.).
