To communicate is to move. There is no way around that. If we pick up comprehensive handbooks or introductory texts in movement science (Hong and Bartlett (2008)) we see that there is very rich knowledge and tractable mathematical models about different aspects of movements. Yet, we find no chapter on communicative movements. While the field of speech motor control is a developed area on its own (Parrell and Lammert (2019)), there is no movement science of communication proper, which would include whole-body-, hand-gestural-, signed-, and inter-bodily actions.
