Title A Language of Their Own: An Interactionist Approach to Human-Horse Communication Type Journal Article
Year 2004 Publication Society and Animals Abbreviated Journal
Volume 12 Issue 4 Pages 299-316
Abstract This paper explores the process of human-horse communication using ethnographic data of in-depth interviews and participant observation. Guided by symbolic interactionism, the paper argues that humans and horses co-create a language system by way of the body to facilitate the creation of shared meaning. This research challenges the privileged status of verbal language and suggests that non-verbal communication and language systems of the body have their own unique complexities. This investigation of humanhorse communication offers new possibilities to understand the subjective and intersubjective world of non-verbal language using beings-human and nonhuman alike.
