Gesture publishes articles reporting original research, as well as survey and review articles, on all aspects of gesture. The journal aims to stimulate and facilitate scholarly communication between the different disciplines within which work on gesture is conducted. Topics may include, but are by no means limited to: the relationship between gesture and speech; gesture and cognition; the development of gesture in children; the place of gesture in first and second language acquisition; the processes by which spontaneously created gestures may become transformed into codified forms; the documentation and discussion of vocabularies of ’quotable’ or ’emblematic’ gestures; the relationship between gesture and sign; the role of gesture in ritual interactions of all kinds; gestures compared cross-culturally; biological studies of gesture, including discussions of the place of gesture in language origins theory; gesture in human-machine interaction; gesture as a part of rhetoric. Gesture provides a place where contributions to this topic may be found from such disciplines as linguistics, archaeology, anthropology, biology, communication studies, neurology, ethology, theatre studies, literature and the visual arts, cognitive psychology, and computer engineering.
