Where do we go with multimodal projections?
This chapter deals with the concepts of projection and conditional relevance by examining the temporal and sequential relationship between speech, gesture and gaze in deictic practices. It makes the following claims: Verbal deictics combined with embodied practices that direct the addressee’s attention to visible phenomena form a multimodal, intercorporeal gestalt. They constitute a request for the addressee’s gaze. This means that within the deictic referencing act, a multimodal summons-answer sequence unfolds that comprises recurrent gaze patterns both of the pointing and the gazing participant. These gaze practices are context-sensitive and temporally fine-tuned to the emerging verbal and kinetic practices, they occupy specific positions within the deictic act which in turn can be embedded within other actions such as instructions, requests etc.
Keywords: projection, conditional relevance, gaze, multimodal gestalt, deixis
