gesticulation (noun) gesture; movement of hands and arms accompanying words.

When you move your arms and hands while speaking you make gesticulations. You make gesticulations, that is, move your hands and arms, to attract others' attention or to make others understand what you are saying. We make gesticulations more when we are angry, excited, or unable to find the right word.
