Abstract

What happens to linguistic deixis theory if co-speech gestures are considered? In this paper I will argue for a redefined concept of origo. It allows us to eliminate a contradiction inherent in the origo instantiation of local deixis between the verbal and gestural levels. The contradiction demonstrated in my example is that, for the same conceptual relation, the origo of the verbal level is allocated to the addressee, whereas the origo of the gestural level is allocated to the speaker himself.The electronic edition of this article includes audio-visual data.
