A Specialized Language System in Working Memory: Evidence from American Sign Language.
Losiewicz, Beth L.
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v19 n1 p63-75 Jun 1999
Investigates whether users of a visual spatial language, American Sign Language, also have a separate working memory subsystem for their visual spatial language, or whether their language working memory is part of their general visual-spatial memory. Results suggest prelingually deaf signers of ASL have a sign language working memory system that operates separately from their general visual-spatial working memory. (Author/VWL)
