Grammaticalization in American Sign Language.
Sexton, A. L.
Language Sciences, v21 n2 p105-41 Apr 1999
A study examined the process of grammaticalization in American Sign Language, examining basic principles and patterns and drawing parallels with oral language. More advanced stages of grammaticalization (involving fusion and affecting syntax) are examined in depth, leading to proposal of a temporal-ordering analysis to explain sequencing of verbal morphology.
