Abstract

This article studies hand gestures and specifies four different possible uses: (1) one-handed gestures; (2) symmetrical two-handed gestures; (3) symmetrical two-handed gestures in which the hands alternately perform the same movement; (4) asymmetrical two-handed gestures. The paper shows how a speaker employs various hand gestures to explain her teaching experiences and views the concurrence of gestures with speech, body posture, shrugs, gaze, and facial expressions as reciprocal actions to an interlocutor's responses. The final section of the paper discusses the flexibility of hand gestures and the different ways in which it is revealed.
