Gesture, or visible bodily action that is seen as intimately involved in the activity of speaking, has long fascinated scholars and laymen alike. Written by a leading authority on the subject, this long-awaited study provides a comprehensive treatment of gesture and its use in interaction, drawing on the analysis of everyday conversations to demonstrate its varied role in the construction of utterances. Adam Kendon accompanies his analyses with an extended discussion of the history of the study of gesture - a topic not dealt with in any previous publication - as well as exploring the relationship between gesture and sign language, and how the use of gesture varies according to cultural and language differences. Set to become the definitive account of the topic, Gesture will be invaluable to all those interested in human communication. Its publication marks a major development, both in semiotics and in the emerging field of gesture studies. • Probably the most comprehensive treatment of gesture to be found anywhere • Presents a series of detailed studies of how gesture is used in conversation which have never been published before • Chapters on the history of the study of gesture, gesture and sign language, and gesture as part of the communication economy of a culture give it a depth not found in any other book on the topic Contents 1.
