Relative Translucency of ASL Signs Representing Three Semantic Classes.
Page, Judith L.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v50 n3 p241-47 Aug 1985
The study attempted to determine whether children and adults perceive different amounts of translucency in signs drawn from early sign teaching lexicons and representing three different semantic classes. Results indicate that four- and seven-year-old children and adults perceive signs representing action as more translucent than signs representing nomination and signs representing nomination as more translucent than signs representing attribution.
