Subject: [humanmarkup] PBS-Doc-kinesic

Title: PBS-Doc-kinesic
T I guess no one had much to say on this, and there sure isn't much to do on it, except some wording changes for consistency and changing it to humlCommAtts.

      Steppin Lively Now....

      kinesic is a ComplexType element with the characteristic of being
      abstract and belongs the attribute set humlIdentifierAtts.

      It is described as Human Movements. It is also described as a
      vocabulary of body language used to protray moods and emotions and
      tom emphasize or contradict what is being said (expressed verbally in
      vocalized language--my own addition). An example is an interview.
      This element is also given a content of sequence as a default.

      I think we may want to add a bit of clarification to what we mean by
      vocabulary. I think what we mean is a set of specific movements we
      can call gestures, and which need to be further described by a
      lexicon of gestures, such as shoulderShrug, headNod, headShake,
      handShake, etc. However, I think this lexicon needs to be in the
      Secondary Base Schema and is perhaps the best example yet for why we
      need this division before we get to the application-area schemata.
