Pauses and Syntax in American Sign Language
Grosjean, Francois; Lane, Harlan
Cognition, 5, 2, 101-17, Jun 77
An analysis of the pauses (holds) in a passage in American Sign Language reveals that sequences of signs are interspersed with holds of different lengths. Long holds appear to indicate the ends of sentences; shorter holds, the break between two conjoined sentences; and the shortest holds, breaks between internal constituents. (Author/MV)
