Applying the Database of Speech and GEsture (DoSaGE) to examine co-verbal gestures among individuals with aphasia: Insight to cross-linguistic studies

Use of gestures is affected by presence of language impairment and one’s cultural background. This presentation will introduce a newly developed Database of Speech and GEsture (DoSaGE), supported by funding from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), that contains independent annotations of gesture forms and functions. Preliminary findings pertaining to an investigation on the differences in employing co-verbal gestures among American and Chinese speakers with and without aphasia will be discussed.
