Searching for Language: Process, Not Product.
Sign Language Studies, v1 n4 p333-43 Sum 2001
Discusses the work of William Stokoe who not only made the claim that American Sign Language is in fact language, but who also questioned the view of linguists of the time and built a unique account of the gestural theory of language. Suggests that semantic phonology is the true legacy of Stokoe's lifelong study of language. (Author/VWL)
