Emergence and Development of Signed Languages: From a Semiogenetic Point of View
Fusellier-Souza, Ivani
Sign Language Studies, v7 n1 p30-56 Fall 2006
This article first introduces some theoretical considerations concerning the emergence and evolution of sign languages from the semiogenetic perspective. It then presents results from a linguistic study of the phenomenon of lexical stabilization in three emerging sign languages used by Brazilian deaf adults who live in a hearing environment without contact with a deaf community. (Contains 5 tables, 7 figures and 2 notes.)
