Subordination in Sign Languages

29 april 2016

This volume represents the first collection of studies investigating various types of subordination in sign languages, thus adding to our understanding of linguistic variation in this domain.

Although previous studies on the grammar of sign languages have provided important insights, there are still many aspects that have not been investigated thoroughly. The structure of subordinated clauses is a case in point. This volume represents the first collection of studies investigating various types of subordination in sign languages, thus adding to our understanding of linguistic variation in this domain. Moreover, it offers new empirical and theoretical evidence concerning possible structures and functions of subordination in natural languages. And last but not least, it addresses the question to what extent the corresponding morphosyntactic and prosodic strategies depend on the modality of articulation and perception.
