Five topics in gesture studies are briefly discussed and references are added so that the discussion can serve as a means by which the reader can pursue them further. We begin with the question “What is a gesture?”, then follow with a discussion of issues regarding the relationship between gesture and speech, what is involved in the interpretation of gestures as expressive acts, how skill in gesturing is acquired and the question of cultural differences in gesture use.
