Research on nonmanual elements – or ‘nonmanuals’ – in sign languages has focused on both the possible functions and the occurrence (frequency and form) of these elements in recent years. As a matter of fact, research on nonmanuals is still a quite uncharted territory in Austrian Sign Language (ÖGS) today, which has also initiated the study given. In order to identify head and body movements in ÖGS, these nonmanuals were determined and analyzed functionally via a new user-oriented methodology. Getting feedback of multiple native signers was a main part of this method. Accordingly, you will find the findings of this study in this volume: various functions such as negation, assertion, interrogativity, conditionality, and many more can be expressed nonmanually. Brand new insights into sign language research are given, as well as astonishing results: even (epistemic) modality can be expressed by particular head and body movements.

It leads one to wonder: What makes them so captivating? Is it our fascination over their superhuman powers and embodiment of incorruptible virtue? Or how they gloriously fight and emerge from gruesome battles? Or is it simply the prowess of the storyteller to enchant readers? The superhero saga revolves around an inevitable clash between good and evil. Though we ultimately look forward to and aspire for the triumph of good, it is really about the journey they tread and the battles they conquer that lure us. In a nutshell, the success of the story relies mainly on the exploits, the skirmishthe action. One word that says it all. Precisely the word that brings together superheroes, villains, and comic aficionados. Thus, the need to learn how to draw figures in motion. In essence, drawing figures in motion involves two aspects: emotions and body movement. We tackle both in the Drawing Superheroes in Action series. In Book I, we explored the essentials of illustrating and inducing the right emotions in each panel. Now, we move on to Book II, where we advance to the second aspect: body movement. Previously, we also discussed how body language plays a significant role in communicating thoughts and feelings. In the succeeding pages, we will delve deeper into the spatial and anatomical minutiae that affect even the slightest of gestures. Before wrapping up, we take on another challenge. We will put all that we have learned into practice by crafting yet another comic strip. With our journey through the comic cosmos nearing its end, here are a few but timely parting words to remember: Fortune favors the bold.

Body Movement and Culture

In Body, Movement, and Culture, Sally Ann Ness provides an original interpretive account of three forms of sinulog dancing practiced in Cebu City in the Philippines: a healing ritual, a dance drama, and a "cultural" exhibition dance. Ness's examination of these dance forms yields rich insights into the cultural predicament of this Philippine city and the way in which kinesthetic and visual symbols interact to create meaning. Ness scrutinizes the patterns of movement, the use of the body and of objects, and the shaping of space common to all three versions of the sinulog. She then relates these elements to the fundamental ways the culture bearers of Cebu City experience their world. For example, she shows how each of the dance forms functions to reinforce class distinctions and to establish a code of authenticated "cultural" action. At the same time, Ness demonstrates, the dances manifest and actualize widely applied notions about the nature of "devotion," "sincerity," "naturalness," and "beauty." Throughout the text, Ness provides a close analysis of movement that is all too often missing from anthropological studies of dance. Most significantly, she works to relate the movements used in dance to everyday movement and to interpret the attitudes and values that are embodied in both choreographed and quotidian movement. Important and illuminating, Body, Movement, and Culture is of particular interest to students and scholars of anthropology, folklore, dance, and Asian studies.

"'Irmgard Bartenieff has a profound knowledge of the human body and how it moves.

Anthropologists and non-verbal communication researchers have found their world view necessarily altered by her fundamental innovations.

The concept of the body is of special importance in Islamic and Arab societies. Much of the daily interaction between peoples in these societies is related to the strict Islamic division of the universe into different spaces; the "feminine" and "masculine," the "pure" and the "polluted," the "private" and "public." Fuad I. Khuri explores the different meanings and images related to the body in Islam and how these permeate religious practices and social attitudes among people, and the numerous ways the body communicates messages, attitudes and feelings through unspoken language.
