Pumping for gestural origins: The well may be rather dry

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):218-219 (2003)

Abstract
Corballis's explanation for right-handedness in humans relies heavily on the gestural protolanguage hypothesis, which he argues for by a series of “intuition pumps.” Scrutinizing the mirror system hypothesis and modern gesture as components of the argument, we find that they do not provide the desired evidence of a gestural precursor to speech.
