A Comparison of Spatial Language in English & American Sign Language.
Emmorey, Karen; Casey, Shannon
Sign Language Studies, n88 p255-88 Fall 1995
Spatial language in English and American Sign Language (ASL) was compared by asking 10 native signers and 10 English speakers to solve a set of spatial puzzles. The study highlights the ramifications of a linguistic system in which space itself is used to convey spatial information compared to one that conveys the same information via an auditory signal.
