In Gestures: Their Origins and Distribution, Desmond Morris and colleagues note that the digitus infamis or digitus impudicus (infamous or indecent finger) is mentioned several times in the literature. In his Gestures: Their Origins and Distribution, published inMorris discussed various possible origins of this sign but came to no definite conclusion: because of the strong taboo associated with the gesture (its public use has often been heavily penalised).

As a result, there is a tendency to shy away from discussing it in detail. Speaking in a second language involves not just speech; it also involves gesture (Stam, ). To not consider gesture in second language speaking is to ignore an integral part of language and interaction.

Abstract. If we take the perspective that language is more than just speech, that it also includes gesture (McNeill, Hand and mind, University of Chicago Press, ; McNeill, Gesture and thought, University of Chicago Press, ), then learners’ and teachers’ gestures need to be taken into account in second language teaching and learning research.
