On Selected Phonological Patterns in Saudi Arabian Sign Language
Tomita, Nozomi; Kozak, Viola
Sign Language Studies, v13 n1 p56-78 Fall 2012
This paper focuses on two selected phonological patterns that appear unique to Saudi Arabian Sign Language (SASL). For both sections of this paper, the overall methodology is the same as that discussed in Stephen and Mathur (this volume), with some additional modifications tailored to the specific studies discussed here, which will be expanded upon later. This paper first focuses on the property of oscillation in certain SASL signs; then it investigates the process of weak-hand drop, comparing it across three sign languages. (Contains 18 figures.)
