Gesture studies are a fertile field that non only includes the enquiry into the relationship between hand gesture and speech, the interpretation of gesture as either central or peripheral phenomenon, but also the cognitive origin of gesture, language origins, and embodied cognition. It is also related to the study of affect and emotion and expressions in animal and human communication, posture shiftings and body movement during speech.
