What can iconic gestures tell us about the language system? A case of conduction aphasia

Cocks, N., Dipper, L., Middleton, R. and Morgan, G. (2011). What can iconic gestures tell us about the language system? A case of conduction aphasia. International Journal of Language and Communcation Disorders, 46(4), pp. 423-436. doi: 10.3109/13682822.2010.520813

Abstract

Speech and language therapists rarely analyse iconic gesture when assessing a client with aphasia, despite a growing body of research suggesting that language and gesture are part of either the same system or two highly integrated systems. This may be because there has been limited research that has systematically analysed iconic gesture production by people with aphasia.
