  • Depicting Translocating Motion in Sign Languages

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Sign languages use space both for grammatical purposes (e.g., to encode grammatical or thematic relations via agreement verbs, see Mathur and Rathmann 2012) and to talk about spatial relations and the movement of objects. Indeed, visual representations of an object moving from one location to another are common in sign languages. This article is part of a larger study of the multiple techniques employed to convey the displacement of an entity in space in sign language narratives and poetry—what we call sign language literature (SLL).In this article, we focus on techniques that convey the translocation of an entity via movement of a body part (articulation) that represents (parts of) that same entity, where the ...

  • Iconicity Perception under the Lens of Iconicity Rating and Transparency
           Tasks in Israeli Sign Language (ISL)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Iconicity is generally referred to as a form-meaning resemblance. It is a product of cognitive processes through which we compare two entities and create a structured-preserving mapping (i.e., a set of correspondences) between our mental models of the two entities (Emmorey 2014). However, iconicity does not necessarily mean transparency (i.e., the ability to correctly guess the meanings of forms): It is not a binary property, but rather it comes in different types and degrees (Klima and Bellugi 1979; Sehyr and Emmorey 2019). This idea will be discussed in depth.Iconicity ratings and transparency experiments have been conducted on a number of spoken and sign languages. The motivation for seeking iconicity ratings is ...

  • Beyond Islay: A Brief Literary History of Deaf Utopia and Dystopia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What if a sign language town, or even a Deaf republic, could be established and maintained within the United States' As a utopian ideal, the idea of self-governance within a geographical homeland has persisted in U.S. Deaf history and literature. From 1700 to 1900, in Martha's Vineyard, a large deaf population lived, worked, and intermarried with the hearing inhabitants on the island in "an almost utopian community," one of the first known "shared signing communities."1 In 1820, Laurent Clerc advocated for setting aside space from a congressional land grant as a headquarters where deaf people could emigrate after completing their education.2 In 1855, John Jacobus Flournoy proposed that "deaf people so inclined ...

  • Sign Names in Yucatec Maya Sign Language

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In every human society, people are identified, recognized, and categorized by a name. In certain cultures, people have one unique name all their lives while, in others, individuals can have several names simultaneously or consecutively and, in many groups, the adscription of the name is socially determined as a result of historical processes. Because of that, names often encode forms of kinship, cultural history, and social norms. Linguistically, sign names can also tell a lot regarding the structure of the phonology and morphology of the language. Moreover, and especially in the case of emerging sign languages that do not inherit a linguistic system from a previously established sign language (at least when the ... Read More
