Book Information

   

Title: Grammatik multimodal [Grammar Multi-modal: How Gestures and Words Combine]
Subtitle: Wie W├Ârter und Gesten zusammenwirken
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/41652?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 40
Description:

We speak not only with our mouths, but also with our hands. And that is not all: this book advances the argument that the gestures which accompany speech are also part of the material to be considered in a grammatical description of German. Using exemplars from the field of syntax, the study demonstrates that gestures can be typologised and semanticised, that constituent structures can be assigned to them which display the quality of recursivity, and that they can function as attributes in nominal groups in spoken language.
