Résumé
This study examines the multimodal package “so” with a pointing gesture in Swiss German. The analysis shows that by using “so” concurrently with resources generally considered to be in the service of local deixis, such as pointing gestures, participants are directing their addressees’ attention to a domain of scrutiny where they should look for additional information to fill the lexico-semantic content of the modal deictic “so”. This lexico-semantic content is the outcome of an action, the correct way of accomplishing an action. Based on video-recordings of two different settings, and taking into account the details of embodied conduct, the paper discusses how local deictic resources when combined with modal deixis can be used to highlight the manner.
