However, there is compelling neurobiological and developmental evidence which suggests that a more integrative approach is required. Take, for instance, the relationship between speech and gesture. Semiotic systems such as gesture, which is integrated with speaking and therefore not dissociated from it, is controlled by meanings in Broca’s area that also control the activity of speaking (McNeill 2005: chapter 8).
