Iconicity and Sign Vocabulary Acquisition.
Beykirch, Hugh L.; And Others
American Annals of the Deaf, v135 n4 p306-11 Oct 1990
Twenty-eight hearing college students were trained on 30 signs from American Sign Language that had been classified as iconic, opaque, or abstract. Students learned and retained iconic signs better than opaque or abstract. A videotaped presentation mode produced greater consistency in scores than computer-assisted instruction. (Author/JDD)
