The word gesture derives from the Latin word gerere, which means "to do," and the Latin word gestra meaning of action. Thus, it appears that a gesture must be noticed by a receiver in order for it to be considered a gesture. Gesturing may be accomplished with any part of the body. In Western culture, hands and facial gestures appear the most prominent, but stance, and general body language may also be considered a gesture.
