    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The book deals with the fundamental question of how language comprehension and situational comprehension interact with one another. Using an oral description of a tour of Potsdam Square in Berlin as an example, the author shows how pointing gestures interact with deictic expressions or pointing words such as "here" or "there", enabling objects to be localized distinctly. The resulting theory on verbal and physical pointing lies within and between the contexts of linguistics, semiotics and gesture studies.
