iii Acknowledgements Although my name stands alone on this dissertation, it would never have been completed without the support of many other people. First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to my promoter, Imre Horváth, who initiated this research project, developed the Hand Motion Language, and strongly supported me throughout these four years, not only professionally, but also personally. Our weekly discussions were crucial to the progress and to the successful finish of my work.
