Sign Recognition Processes in American Sign Language: The Effect of Context.
Clark, Lorene E.; Grosjean, Francois
Language and Speech, v25 n4 p325-40 Oct-Dec 1982
Individual signs were presented to deaf fluent signers both in context and without context. Within context, signs were isolated sooner, perfect confidence in the response was reached sooner, and a narrowing-in process was found that was both semantic and phonological. Current spoken-word-recognition models could be modified to reflect sign-recognition findings. (MSE)
