Pragmatic and Linguistic Constraints on Message Formulation: A Cross-Linguistic Study of English and ASL.
Brown, Paula M.; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n6 p1346-61 Dec 1991
Forty hearing-impaired adults read and retold short stories, in either English or American Sign Language (ASL). Analysis indicated that there was more explicitness in ASL, with more importance placed on specification of instruments involved in an action. No significant story differences were found between subjects' stories and stories of normal-hearing controls. (Author/JDD)
