The categorical role of structurally iconic signs

Abstract : Goldin-Meadow and Brentari argue that for sign language users gesture, in contrast to linguistic sign, is iconic, highly variable, and similar to spoken language cospeech gesture. We discuss two examples (telicity and absolute gradable adjectives) that challenge the use of these criteria for distinguishing sign from gesture.
