Classifier constructions in sign languages

Apr 19, 2021

Recent research into signed languages indicates that signs may share some properties with gesture, especially in the use of space in classifier constructions. A prediction of this proposal is that there will be similarities in the representation of motion events by sign-na ve gesturers and by native signers of unrelated signed languages

    Perspectives on Classifier Constructions in Sign Languages

    Classifier constructions are universal to sign languages and exhibit unique properties that arise from the nature of the visual-gestural modality. The major goals are to bring to light critical issues related to the study of classifier constructions and to present state-of-the-art linguistic and psycholinguistic analyses of these constructions

    Talk:Classifier constructions in sign languages ... Classifier handshapes would warrant their own article. Incorporating it as it is now would be problematic for two reasons. First of all there practically no sources and secondly they are already described in the article as whole entity classifiers. It would put undue weight on them if they

    Oct 20, 2014 There has long been interest in why languages are shaped the way they are, and in the relationship between sign language and gesture. In sign languages, entity classifiers are handshapes that encode how objects move, how they are located relative to one another, and how multiple objects of the same type are distributed in space
