Winston, Elizabeth A.
Sign Language Studies, n73 p397-410 Win 1991
Spatial referencing in American Sign Language (ASL) functions at both the lexical and the discourse levels. In discourse, it can be used by a signer to produce cohesion in comparisons, performatives, and time mapping. The occurrence and function of spatial referencing in an ASL text as it produces cohesion is examined. (11 references) (Author/JL)
