In communication; vagueness; unspecificity; approximation; uncertainty and hesitation (VUAUH) can all be expressed by words; prosody or gesture. This paper examines the relationship between the expression of VUAUH and gestures connected to them. A corpus consisting of political debates was used to select relevant data. The data enabled us to connect some of the VUAUH types; or combinations of types; to gestures. Findings indicated that; for example; approximation was expressed together with head waggle.

Keywords: vagueness; gesture
