A Selected Bibliography on Sign Language Studies. CAL-ERIC/CLL Series on Languages and Linguistics, No. 34.
This 24-item annotated bibliography is intended to facilitate introduction to the field of sign language studies. It lists selected published works in English in which sign language is viewed from several different aspects, including: theoretical studies (nos. 1, 5, 6, 19, 20 and 21); works relating Sign to other visual communication systems (nos. 4, 7 and 13); historical studies (nos. 9 and 18); textbooks of American Sign Language (nos. 8 and 16); psycholinguistic studies including Sign acquisition (nos. 2, 3, 10, 12, 14, 17, 22 and 23); and sociolinguistic studies (nos. 15 and 24). Works on topics related or peripheral to Sign, such as kinesics and gestural system, where Sign is not mentioned, are not included, but are referenced in the bibliographies of the items listed and in Hayes (no. 11). The orientation of the listed works is toward consideration of what criteria a language must satisfy, and whether these are met by Sign. The annotations summarize the contents and often include an evaluation of the possible significance of the works. (Author/RM)
