Verbal-nonverbal two-element combinations in children`s communication

Studies on communication skills of young children have shown that body language is used for the purpose of communication early in ontogenesis and regardless of culture. Before children learn to speak, they express  themselves through gestures and continue to produce gesture-word combinations later in development. Multiple research suggests that those compounds are used when a child is not yet able to combine two words into a single utterance.
This paper focuses on the role of gesture and speech combinations as a transitional device for future developments in language
