To the editors:

Concerning “More Than Words Can Say” [October 25], is David McNeill earnestly re-inventing the wheel? I notice no mention of Ray Birdwhistle and Kinesics. I remember discussing it with him some 40 years ago, and his book has been around for at least 25 years. Of course, psychologists always did ignore anthropologists except to go to our parties.
