Numeral Incorporating Roots & Non-Incorporating Prefixes in American Sign Language.
Lidell, Scott K.
Sign Language Studies, v92 p201-26 Fall 1996
Discusses the paradigms in American Sign Language (ASL) resulting from a process called "numeral incorporation" and others in which numeral handshapes alternate to express different numerical values. Concludes that not only are the signs in the "decade" paradigm fixed units in ASL grammar, but so are all the other examples of numeral incorporation. (19 references) (Author/CK)
