  • The Lexical Shift in Japanese Sign Language (JSL) Toponyms: Accounting for
           the Preference of Complex over Simple Toponym Outputs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This work categorizes Japanese Sign Language (JSL) toponyms, or more specifically domestic regional names such as cities and prefectures, and it examines factors that potentially affect their structure. A JSL toponym can emerge as either an exonym, influenced by the source Japanese name, or an endonym, independent of written or spoken Japanese. These two categories of toponyms contrast structurally in that JSL exonyms tend to emerge as compounds while endonyms tend to conform more closely to canonical monomorphemic JSL lexemes. Based on the contrast, one would expect the structurally more favorable, less marked, endonymic outputs to emerge as the norm (Battison 1978, 57); however, structurally complex exonymic ... Read More

  • Emergence of a Signing Advantage: An Investigation of Spatial Abilities of
           Adult Hearing L2 Learners of ASL

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Spatial abilities are nonlinguistic cognitive skills, which involve understanding visually presented information, including mentally manipulating figures or objects (Linn and Petersen 1985; Voyer, Voyer, and Bryden 1995). In addition to the obvious visual aspect of sign languages, such as ASL, spatial abilities are connected to signing because space is included in the language (Bellugi et al. 1990; Emmorey 2003; Secora and Emmorey 2020). Although experience with a sign language may not improve general spatial skills (e.g., Emmorey, Klima, and Hickok 1998; Marschark et al. 2015), experience with a visual-spatial language may influence certain cognitive processes (Keehner and Gathercole 2007) and cognitive speed. ...

  • Effects of Early ASL Exposure on Fingerspelling Accuracy in Deaf Adults

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Research exploring different components of finger-spelling has continuously expanded over the past two decades. In the case of ASL, fingerspelling represents the orthography of the English alphabet (Emmorey and Petrich 2011). Fingerspelling in ASL has been associated with literacy acquisition (Padden 2006; Stone et al. 2015), explored as a link between novel word learning and reading (Chamberlain and Mayberry 2000; Haptonstall-Nykaza and Schick 2007; Hile 2009; Hirsh-Pasek 1987; Locke and Locke 1971; Padden and Ramsey 1998, 2000), and identified as a bridge to reading comprehension (Padden and Ramsey 1998, 2000; Sehyr, Petrich, and Emmorey 2017).D/deaf children of Deaf parents reportedly begin learning ...

  • Assessing an Automated Tool to Quantify Variation in Movement and
           Location: A Case Study of American Sign Language and Ghanaian Sign
           Language

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To date, there are more than 200 sign languages documented in the world (Hammarström et al. 2021). However, little is known about the possible genealogical connections between different sign languages, and many assertions on this topic are based purely on historical records of language contact (Börstell, Crasborn, and Whynot 2020). As Abner et al. (2020, 18) point out, “[S]cant research exists on historical change and historical relations among sign languages.” Moreover, there has not been a methodical and large-scale study concerned with families of sign languages yet.Typically, historical-comparative research on sign languages uses lexical comparison and lexicostatistics to measure similarity in parameter values ...
