On the Role of Sign Order and Morphological Structure in Memory for American Sign Language.
Hanson, Vicki L.; Bellugi, Ursula
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v21 n5 p621-33 Oct 1982
Investigates sentence processing in a visual-gestural language by testing signers' recognition for American Sign Language sentences. Results indicate that signers decompose a complex sign into its lexical and inflectional components during sentence comprehension and remember the meaning expressed by these components rather than remembering the exact sign structure.
