CoGesT: a formal transcription system for conversational gesture

  • In order to create reusable and sustainable multimodal resources a transcription model for hand and arm gestures in conversation is needed. We argue that transcription systems so far developed for sign language transcription and psychological analysis are not suitable for the linguistic analysis of conversational gesture. Such a model must adhere to a strict form-function distinction and be both computationally explicit and compatible with descriptive notations such as feature structures in other areas of computational and descriptive linguistics. We describe the development and evaluation of a suitable formal model using a feature-based transcription system, concentrating as a first step on arm gestures within the context of the development of an annotated video resource and gesture lexicon.
