Veinberg, Silvana C.; Wilbur, Ronnie B.
Sign Language Studies, n68 p217-44 Fall 1990
Examination of two native American Sign Language signers' use of negative headshakes found that negative headshakes (1) were used syntactically to indicate negation; (2) could be accompanied by other nonmanual behaviors; (3) could accompany a negative lexical item; and (4) were synchronized generally with syntactic constituents.
