  GESTURES AROUND THE WORL WORKED BY:   MesueseAurela    ENGLISH PROJECT    7.11.2014    What are gestures?    Gestures are a form of nonverbal communication in which visible bodily actions are used to communicate  important messages, either in place of speech or together and in parallel with spoken words. Gestures include movement of the hands, face, or other parts of the body. Physical non-verbal communication such as purely expressive displays, proxemic, or displays of joint attention differ from gestures, which communicate specific messages . Some gestures might be insulting… Be careful!!!    The thumbs-up signal is considered an insult in Iran, where this is called a bilakh and roughly translates to up yours. The OK sign, where thumb and forefinger meet to create a circle, is an obscene gesture if you're in Brazil or Turkey, where you're comparing someone to a particularly dirty part of the body. And if you're motioning to someone in Latin America by using an upward palm and waving your fingers back, you might get a much friendlier response that anticipated, as this is a common romantic solicitation . Know your right from your left    In Muslim countries, the right hand is reserved for activities such as eating and shaking hands.
