My researach interest focusses on aphasia and the communication of people with aphasia. Aphasia is a language impairment resulting from acquired brain damage. Consequently, individuals with aphasia encounter communication difficulties in daily life. In my PhD project at TiCC, I wish to find out whether these individuals could make use of gestures to support their communication. I look at different linguistic disorders and their influence on 1) the comprehensiblity of gestures and 2) the representation techniques used to depict information in gesture, particularly pantomime: gesture in absence of speech.
