I think it should not be too difficult (cf all the helpful comments below).
Capture all your data on a godd audio video, watching the number count.
Then using perhaps Sinclair and Coultard analyse the language ( which in any
case overlaps beween speakers), then go through it again, this time matching
the gestures to thre language. Once you have paired language and gesture,
then you have to work out why this should be working together: this is
monstrously time-consuming, but it will get you where you want to go.
