Iconic gestures occur during continuous speech and show in their form a meaning related to the meaning articulated in speech. In most cases the related speech unit is a word, called the 'lexical affiliate' of the gesture. Grammatical analysis of lexical affiliates may enhance the understanding of the processes that mediate between speech and gesture production.
