dc.description.abstractThe goal of this paper is to study the speech - gesture relation in topic organization in English as L1 and as L2. Twenty subjects (ten Spanish, ten American) aged 19 - 21 participated in this experiment. They were asked to watch a 7 - minute - long anim ated cartoon and then they were asked to narrate what they had seen to a partner. We analyzed the following features, both in English as L1 and in English as L2: (1) average of gestures per informant; (2) percentage of gestures with new and old topics; (3) rate of pictograms with gestured new and old topics; and (4) rate of gestured new and old topics with action and state verbs. Then, we compared the Spanish speakers’ behaviour in English as L2 with their behaviour in L1, in order to discern whether they u se the same gestures and topic organisation in both languages or they don’t. The results showed important verbal and non - verbal differences in topic organization in English as L1 and as L2.es
