The present survey celebrates the publication of Elena A. Grishina’s monograph “Russian gestures from a linguistic perspective” (2017) and is devoted to the description of modern corpus studies in the field of gestural, or multimodal, linguistics, which examines spontaneous gestures in their relation to oral communication. The survey describes the features of Elena A. Grishina’s approach, which make her research unique not only for Russian linguistics, but also internationally.
