Gestures are an integral part of human communication and they are inseparably intertwined with speech. The detailed nature of this connection, however, is still a matter of considerable debate, becoming particularly obvious in the different production models that have been proposed in the literature. We will review and discuss psycholinguistic and computational production models including their respective empirical basis.
