    Gesture Helps, Only If You Need It: Inhibiting Gesture Reduces Tip‐of‐the‐Tongue Resolution for Those With Weak Short‐Term Memory.Jennie E. Pyers, Rachel Magid, Tamar H. Gollan & Karen Emmorey - 2021 - Cognitive Science 45 (1):e12914.
    People frequently gesture when a word is on the tip of their tongue (TOT), yet research is mixed as to whether and why gesture aids lexical retrieval. We tested three accounts: the lexical retrieval hypothesis, which predicts that semantically related gestures facilitate successful lexical retrieval; the cognitive load account, which predicts that matching gestures facilitate lexical retrieval only when retrieval is hard, as in the case of a TOT; and the motor movement account, which predicts that any motor movements should (...)

    Referential shift in Nicaraguan Sign Language: a transition from lexical to spatial devices.Annemarie Kocab, Jennie Pyers & Ann Senghas - 2014 - Frontiers in Psychology 5:81651.
    Even the simplest narratives combine multiple strands of information, integrating different characters and their actions by expressing multiple perspectives of events. We examined the emergence of referential shift devices, which indicate changes among these perspectives, in Nicaraguan Sign Language (NSL). Sign languages, like spoken languages, mark referential shift grammatically with a shift in deictic perspective. In addition, sign languages can mark the shift with a point or a movement of the body to a specified spatial location in the three-dimensional space (...)

    Do parents modify child-directed signing to emphasize iconicity?Paris Gappmayr, Amy M. Lieberman, Jennie Pyers & Naomi K. Caselli - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    Iconic signs are overrepresented in the vocabularies of young deaf children, but it is unclear why. It is possible that iconic signs are easier for children to learn, but it is also possible that adults use iconic signs in child-directed signing in ways that make them more learnable, either by using them more often than less iconic signs or by lengthening them. We analyzed videos of naturalistic play sessions between parents and deaf children aged 9–60 months. To determine whether iconic (...)
