Pointing has captured the interest of scholars from various fields who
study communication. However, ideas and findings have been scattered
across disciplines, and opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange
have been very limited. The editor's aim is to provide an arena for
such exchange by bringing together papers on pointing gestures from
disciplines such as developmental psychology, psycholinguistics,
sign-language linguistics, linguistic anthropology, conversational
analysis, and primatology.

The volume can be used as a required text in a course on gestural
communication with multidisciplinary perspectives. It can also be used
as a supplemental text in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses
on interpersonal communication, cross-cultural communications,
language development, and psychology of language.

Lingfield(s):	Psycholinguistics 			 

Written In:	English (Language Code: ENG)
