Description
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effect of linguistic dominance on gesture use in bilingual children. Twenty bilingual children aged between 6 and 10 years old were split into two groups regarding their familiarity with storytelling and were videotaped when they told back the stories. The results tend to confirm the idea that children display more gestures when they use their dominant language. These findings are discussed in the light of ongoing research dealing with the relationship between gesture use and linguistic dominance and consider the task difficulty as an explanatory factor underlying gesture use.
