about this item

Researchers present findings of a large cross-linguistic study on semantic fields in sign languages that focuses on color terms, kinship terms, and quantification with an emphasis on numerals. Covering first European then non-European sign languages, they consider such topics as a comparative typological study of semantic fields in sign languages, colors and numerals in Spanish Sign Language, color signs in Icelandic sign language, a preliminary study of color terms in Indonesian sign language varieties, and aspects of number and kinship terms in Japanese Sign Language.
