The Perception of Grammatical Boundaries in Sign Language.
Tweney, Ryan D.; And Others
Discourse Processes, v6 n3 p295-304 Jul-Sep 1983
Examines whether specific characteristics of American Sign Language (ASL) syntax affect perceptual processing of the language. Findings support the psychological reality of sentence embedding processes in ASL, further supporting the claim that visually based languages achieve the same functional goals as speech, although with different means.
