The LingCologne 2019 Multimodality conference brings to the fore the relevance of conceiving of language in a unified way: encompassing SPOKEN and SIGNED languages, GESTURE and WRITING. Considering multiple channels of expression will highlight the fundamental multimodality and semiotic diversity of language. The conference focuses on a multimodal view of language and provides insights into the interactions of different language modalities (oral-vocal, visual-gestural and written modality) and the systems underlying these interactions.
