Gesture language

  1. Sep 6, 2008 #1
    Thanks for reading
    Do people determine rules for gesture interpretation ? Could language comprehension be done via just emotion [leaving out cases of deception]?

    Are you meaning like sign language? or purely just going by emotions?

    I think the OP means non-verbal communication - like body language.

    There are aspects of non-verbal communication that are culture specific. If you want full and complete communication mcknia already gave you the answer - sign language.
