Phonological Representation of the Sign: Linearity and Nonlinearity in American Sign Language
A central goal of Phonological Representations of the Sign is to answer the question:
what does it mean to say that a sign language has a phonology?
As a point of departure, the author explores claims of some scholars that the phonemes of American Sign Language (ASL)
are simultaneously organized, and of other that signs also have sequential internal organization.
She concludes that both claims are accurate, and draws on theories of nonlinear phonology and morphology to represent both properties formally.
The study aims to make testable claims about ASL structure, and to facilitate meaningful comparison of signed and spoken languages.
