Title: Gesture and Metaphor: Two Sides of a Conceptual and Linguistic Coin?

Abstract: This talk will discuss potential analogies between metaphor and gesture comprehension with reference to findings from an 8-year longitudinal study. Prior research has independently shown that early gestural abilities predict children's subsequent language development (e.g. Colonnesi et al., 2010; Kirk et al., 2022; Lüke et al., 2020) while other work has shown evolving, strong connections between language skills, metaphor comprehension, and Theory of Mind (ToM) ability (e.g. Kalandadze et al., 2018; Milligan et al., 2007; Osterhaus and Koerber, 2021; Pronina et al., 2023; Tonini et al., 2023). Connecting these previous findings, we aimed to investigate the contribution of two different types of gesture—production of preverbal pointing gestures across a number of communicative motives and early iconic gesture comprehension—alongside early language skills to the later development of more advanced metacognitive and social pragmatic skills: ToM and metaphor comprehension.

Thirty-five monolingual, German-speaking children (18 boys, 17 girls) participated between the ages of 1 to 9 years in a longitudinal study at TU Dortmund University. Alongside the ongoing development of their language skills (productive vocabulary, productive and receptive grammar), the children were also assessed for pointing gestures at the age of 1;0 and iconic gesture comprehension at the age of 3;0, as well as metaphor comprehension and ToM skills at age 9;0. Results indicated that index-finger pointing at 1;0 can predict ToM ability and metaphor comprehension at age 9;0, mediated by both iconic gesture comprehension and language skills at age 3;0. These findings confirm existing work, highlighting the predictive nature of early gesture usage and comprehension not only for general language abilities such as vocabulary and grammar but also for more advanced metacognitive and social pragmatic skills.

Title: Theory-driven investigations of structural priming in conversations

Abstract

Structural priming—a change in processing observed upon repeated exposure to a linguistic structure—is one of the most studied phenomena in psycholinguistics. Prior research has discovered multiple determinants of structural priming which implicate several features of memory, ranging from the lexical to the semantic and the explicit to the implicit. Five such determinants are the lexical boost, the semantic boost, the inverse preference effect, the persistence of structural priming, and the fast decay of the lexical boost. Although structural priming is known to occur in conversation, there is as yet no thorough understanding of how the five determinants affect priming between interlocutors. In this talk, I present a novel operationalization of the five determinants and test their generalizability to actual conversation. Since the project is in its initial stages (i.e., prior to preregistration), I look forward to critical feedback on the choice and operationalization of the five determinants.

Speaker’s Bio

Yngwie Asbjørn Nielsen is a PhD student at Aarhus University working on structural priming and conversational alignment.
