Sign Language versus Spoken Language.
Stokoe, William C.
Sign Language Studies, v1 n4 p407-25 Sum 2001
Suggests that various parts of the grammar of American Sign Language--particularly its verb and pronoun system--give convincing evidence that such grammar cannot have derived from the grammars of spoken languages; rather the continuity is from cognitive activity expressed in gSigns toward linguistic organization both of the expressive material and the semantic, and thence to spoken language.
