This book was published by Walter de Gruyter.
The book deals with the fundamental question of how language comprehension
and situational comprehension interact with one another. Using an oral
description of a tour of Potsdam Square in Berlin as an example, the author
shows how pointing gestures interact with deictic expressions or pointing
words such as "here" or "there", enabling objects to be localized
distinctly. The resulting theory on verbal and physical pointing lies
within and between the contexts of linguistics, semiotics and gesture studies.
