A shrug is not a sentence

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):215-215 (2003)
Abstract
Corballis's claim that the origin of syntax lies in solely gesture is contested. His scenario does not explain why constraints on syntactic “movement” are apparently part of the human biological endowment for language. It also does not pay enough attention to the internal structure of sentences, and how they contrast with other linguistic units such as noun phrases.
