Title: The lexicon of gaze. Methods of analysis and research results

Date: Friday 27th April at 12:00

Venue: LBR2


While in the domain of body communication several authors have written down lexicons of gestures, no similar endeavour has been undertaken about eye-gaze signals.

This work presents  some studies aimed at describing the phonology, the lexicon, and the morphology of the communication system of gaze. I will show how such investigation may exploit various research methods, from ethnosemantics to observational analysis, from empirical studies to computer simulation, and overview the general structure of the lexicon of gaze, finally focusing on some specific lexicons, like one of the orchestra conductor’s gaze.
