Can gesture communicate deeply as language?

The saying goes "actions speak louder than words" which doesn't always mean they're deeper than words used thoughtfully. Body language can communicate emotions very well, even code like semaphore. One person might need the words: I love you when another only needs a hug. Mime can cross language barriers, but just the sound of a home language can mean everything to a person. It depends what's important at the time. Gesture communicates deeper than any spoken language when those involved in a conversation--the sender and the receiver--do not have or share a common language. If you don't understand English for instance, and someone says, go...go...go... and his gesture indicates come, you are most likely going to move towards the speaker. Here gesture communicates deeper than the spoken word.
