The Gestalt Hypothesis - On the form and meaning of gestures
University of Göteborg.
1993 (English)In: Semio Nordica, ISSN 1237-1750, Vol. 2, 17-33 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

A hypothesis is proposed that relates the fonn and meaning of gestures. The fonn of a gesture is characterized as belonging to a class of gestural gestalts. The class of gestural gestalts exbibits certain emotiv-conceptual qualities which serve as a bridge between the fonn and a class of meanings referred to as a semantic field. The hypothesis is explained and illustrated by means of a number of examples from a !arge Cross-cultural Gesture Corpus. The implications and consequences that the hypothesis has for international and intercultural communication are also discussed.
