Pointing in Sign Language and Gesture: An Alternative Interpretation.
Haukioja, Timo
Language and Communication, v13 n1 p19-25 Jan 1993
Examines the relationship between sign language and gesture in language acquisition. Specifically, the question is asked, are sign language and nonlinguistic gestures treated differently by infants acquiring a sign language? The answer is found in reexamining data concerning two deaf children learning American Sign Language (ASL). The data specifically deal with the acquisition of the pronominal system of ASL. (LET)
