Eyeblinks and ASL Phrase Structure.
Wilbur, Ronnie
Sign Language Studies, n84 p221-40 Fall 1994
Attempts to formulate an appropriate linguistic generalization for the occurrence of inhibited periodic eyeblinking by fluent American Sign Language (ASL) signers. It is shown that signers' eyeblinks are sensitive to syntactic structure, from which intonational phrases may be derived. (19 references) (MDM)
