Description: In this project, we analyze the development of gesture-speech temporal alignment patterns in children’s narrative speech from a longitudinal perspective (at 5-6 and 7-9 years of age), by assessing differences between gesture types (in terms of gesture referentiality, i.e., referential and non-referential gestures). Our findings show that at the age of 5-6 children overwhelmingly align both referential and non-referential gestures with pitch-accented syllables in a target-like way since the start of the production of their first complex narratives. This study has been accepted for publication in Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research. This project has been conducted using data from the "Audiovisual corpus of Catalan children's narrative discourse development" (Vilà-Giménez et al., 2021).
