Linguistics of American Sign Language: An Introduction

Linguistics of American Sign Language: An Introduction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The new Linguistics of American Sign Language features recent discoveries on iconic signs in American Sign Language (ASL) and the relationship between metaphor and iconicity in signed languages. The authors have also added findings from their seven-year study of variation in ASL, along with related readings. The section on the function of space reflects new research, revealing that space can have many functions in ASL. Also, the third edition introduces a new area of study, the artistic forms of ASL, including storytelling, percussion signing, drama, comedy, and poetry. References have been completely updated, and the authoritative readings on linguistic concepts remain intact, thoroughly addressing the fundamentals of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and the use of language. Individual units on these basic linguistic categories have been designed to stimulate discussion about the ongoing development of ASL linguistic theory. Linguistics of American Sign Language also features homework questions, themes for classroom interaction, and study sheets centering on a story signed in ASL on the course videotape.
