Eye Gaze in Creative Sign Language
Kaneko, Michiko; Mesch, Johanna
Sign Language Studies, v13 n3 p372-400 Spr 2013
This article discusses the role of eye gaze in creative sign language. Because eye gaze conveys various types of linguistic and poetic information, it is an intrinsic part of sign language linguistics in general and of creative signing in particular. We discuss various functions of eye gaze in poetic signing and propose a classification of gaze behaviors based on the observation of a number of poems in British Sign Language and Swedish Sign Language. (Contains 1 table, 28 figures, and 4 notes.)
