This study investigates recurring patterns of gesturing during episodes of word search and own communication management, i.e. choice and change operations in speech. Two databases of word search episodes, one of person with aphasia and one of persons without aphasia, each containing 100 episodes, were analyzed. An extensive set of recurrent features of gesture and meaning connections was identified. In general, the same recurrent features were found for persons with and without aphasia. The recurrent gesture patterns can be used for educating health personnel and families of persons with aphasia in order to enhance understanding or aphasic gesturing.
