about this item

Linguists working in different sign languages explore means for generating complex syntactic structure, focusing on subordination, both means that sign language share with spoken languages and means unique to sign languages. Among the topics are complex sentences in sign language--modality, typology, discourse; observations on clausal complementation in Turkish Sign Language; an in-depth tour into sentential complementation in Italian Sign Language; reporting with and without role shift: sign language strategies of complementation; and an annotation scheme to investigate the form and function of hand dominance in the Corpus NGT (Sign Language of the Netherlands).
