Abstract:

Gestures are prevalent in communication and tightly linked to language and
speech. As such they can shed important light on issues of language
development across the lifespan. This volume, originally published as a
Special Issue of Gesture Volume 8:2 (2008), brings together studies
from different disciplines that examine language development in children
and adults from varying perspectives. It provides a review of common
theoretical and empirical themes, and the contributions address topics such
as gesture use in prelinguistic infants, the relationship between gestures
and lexical development in typically and atypically developing children and
in second language learners, what gestures reveal about discourse, and how
all languages that adult second language speakers know can influence each
other. The papers exemplify a vibrant new field of study with relevance for
multiple disciplines.
