Fischer, Susan D.; Delhorne, Lorraine A.; Reed, Charlotte M.

Videotaped productions of isolated American Sign Language signs or sentences were presented at speeds of two to six times normal. Results indicated a breakdown in intelligibility at around 2.5 to 3 times the normal rate. Results are similar to those found for auditory reception of time-compressed speech suggesting a modality-independent limit to language processing. (Author/DB)
