Gesturing provides an important communicative resource for spatial language. This chapter examines the morphological variety of iconic gestures in shape descriptions and the verbal utterances they are linked to. Based on the empirical results, the chapter proposes a computational model for the comprehension of shape descriptions containing verbal and gestural parts.

Keywords:   iconic gestures, computational modelling, language comprehension, shape representation
