about this item

Examining how speakers of English and French express the location of objects in speech and gesture, Tutton focuses on static locative relationships, that is, relationships in which the object or objects being located as well as the objects in relation to which the localization occurs are at fixed points in space. Both speech and gesture play pivotal roles in the process of expressing locative relationships, he says, and shows how speech and gesture are interconnected modalities that can express different yet complementary aspects of a scene or event.
