The physiognomic unity of sign, word, and gesture

Autores: Carlos Cornejo, Roberto Musa.

Goldin-Meadow & Brentari (G-M&B) are implicitly going against the dominant paradigm in language research, namely, the “speech as written language” metaphor that portrays vocal sounds and bodily signs as means of delivering stable word meanings. We argue that Heinz Werner’s classical research on the physiognomic properties of language supports and complements their view of sign and gesture as a unified system.
