Title: Language and Gesture
Written By: David McNeill
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521771668
Series Title: Language, Culture and Cognition 2
Description:

This landmark study examines the role of gestures in relation to speech and
thought. Leading scholars, including psychologists, linguists and
anthropologists, offer state-of-the-art analyses to demonstrate that
gestures are not merely an embellishment of speech but are integral parts
of language itself. The volume contributes to a rapidly growing field of
study, offering a wide range of theoretical perspectives. It has strong
cross-linguistic and cross-cultural components, examining gestures by
speakers of Mayan, Australian, East Asian, as well as English and European
languages.
