Nouns and Verbs in Australian Sign Language: An Open and Shut Case?
Johnston, Trevor
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v6 n4 p235-57 Fall 2001
Re-examination of data on noun-verb pair comprehension and production in Australian and American Sign Language confirm the existence of formationally related noun-verb pairs in Auslan in which the verb displays a single movement and the noun displays a repeated movement. Overall, the derivational process appears closely linked to an iconic base and is only partially grammatical. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
