The Distribution of Signs in New Zealand Sign Language
McKee, David; Kennedy, Graeme
Sign Language Studies, v6 n4 p372-390 Sum 2006
Until now, teachers and learners of NZSL have not had access to information on the most frequently used signs in the Deaf community. This article describes the first study of the distribution of signs in New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL). We hope that it will help teachers of NZSL make decisions about which signs to teach first and suggest questions for investigation into other signed languages using a corpus analysis approach. (Contains 9 tables and 2 figures.)
