Prof. Yishai Tobin (Ben-Gurion University, Be'er-Sheva, Israel) will visit HumTec to give a talk about the semiotic analysis of gesture in developmental and clinical phonology, prosody and sign language.

He will present his work on Phonology as Human Behaviour (PHB) and the phonological component of the Saussurean-motivated Columbia School (CS) of Linguistics, which sees language "as a symbolic tool whose structure is shaped both by its communicative function and by the characteristics of its users".
