    Part 5: The dynamic dimension, modes of consciousness. David McNeill, University of Chicago. The dual semiosis of global-synthetic gesture, merging with analytic-combinatoric speech, synchronizing at points where they are co-expressive – namely, gesture–speech unity – led to other dynamic properties: the imagery–language dialectic, and three others, “psychological predicates. Thought-language-hand links tie them together when the dynamic dimension of language is engaged. Selection scenario. The family, particularly in its child-rearing aspects, is an environment where the social/public value of one’s own gestures is adaptive, and where Mead’s Loop could have been naturally selected (no doubt Mead’s Loop was.

    In this paper we present a coding manual aimed at the annotation of linguistic and gesture production of narratives performed by children and adults of different languages, with emphasis to the relationship between speech and gesture and how it develops.

    In the emphasis was on how gestures reveal thought; now it is how gestures fuel thought and speech. The new step is to emphasize the 'dynamic dimension' of language—how linguistic forms and gestures participate in a real-time dialectic during discourse, and thus propel and shape speech and thought as they occur moment to moment.

Levy vi, pp. Each of the 21 chapters in this volume reflects a view of language as a dynamic phenomenon with emergent structure, and in each, gesture is approached as part of language, not an adjunct to it. Gesture and Thought, a book of the same title as this essay [1], presents a new conception of language: language as an imagery-language dialectic in which the role of gestures is to provide imagery for the dialectic.

Gesture is an integral component of language in this conception, not merely an accompaniment or ornament. Gesture and Thought focuses on the real-time actualization of thought and language, regarding language multimodally and in context—its dynamic dimension.

On the dynamic dimension, language appears to be a process, not an object. On the crosscutting static dimension, it looks to be an object but not a process. The craft of gesture is part of the practical equipment with which we inhabit and understand the world together.

Drawing on micro-ethnographic research in diverse interaction settings, this book explores the communicative ecologies in which hand-gestures appear: illuminating the world around us, depicting it, making sense of it, and symbolizing the interaction process itself.

Gesture and Thought is an ambitious project in the ongoing study of how we communicate and how language is connected to thought. Discover the world's research 17+ million members. Buy Gesture and the Dynamic Dimension of Language by Susan D.
