Gesture and words

Spontaneous gestures can help children to learn whether they use spoken language or sign-language. This is an important result of a new report.

It’s really interesting and important that the reported findings make clear that children have an understanding of the notions before they are able to express themselves in speech. Notion means here a gesture plus word-combination.

Children learn this from their parents. This of course, and this is another result, has been found with children who learn sign-language from their parents. Even deaf children who were not able to learn a spoken language learn a sign-language, so to say a homemade gesture-system in order to communicate.
