Agreement Verbs Move From The Subject To The Object

Thompson, Robin, Karen Emmorey and Robert Kluender. 2009. Learning to Look: The Acquisition of Vision Tuning When Producing ASL Verbs. Bilingualism: language and cognition 12 (4). 393-409 DOI: Meier (2002) and Lillo-Martin and Meier (2011), that the amount of display verbs inside a language cannot be predicted solely from formal or semantic properties (for example.B. in ASL HATEX→Y is a display verb, while LIKE, which implies movement away from the chest, could be a display verb, but is not a display verb). They also find that the amount of verbs indicating differs between languages. For example, the EXPLAIN→Y sign is a display verb in BSL/Auslan, but it is not a sign that could be read in ASL as EXPLAIN. In addition, some sign languages, such as.B. German Sign Language, a marker of people`s agreement (see Steinbach & Pfau 2007; Steinbach 2011). This is a non-specific aid certificate that is used in combination with a simple verb to indicate who trusts whom. Beyond the general definition of conformity, as provided for in (1), Corbett (2006) also provides a detailed overview of the essential characteristics of what he calls the «canonical» agreement: the most obvious examples in the concordance literature according to the definition he adopts. The convergence of the sexes in the Italian substantive sentence is an example of canonical concordance, as in examples (3) and (4).

Fenlon, Jordan, Adam Schembri and Kearsy Cormier. 2018. Modification of the announcement in the British Sign Language: A corpus-based study. Language 94 (1). 84–118. DOI: Another phenomenon that is supposed to be a concordance in sign languages is the movement of scrolls, also known as constructed action (Boucher 1995); Cormier et al. 2015b) – i.e. a form of staging using one or more physical joints (including head, face, gaze, arms and torso) to represent the words, thoughts, feelings and/or actions of one or more speakers (also used in direct multimodal quotes from non-signatories, for example.B Stec et al.

2016). This is the use of non-manual markers during the movement of the rollers, which has been considered by some to be part of a tuning system. For example, Kegl (1995) describes what she called a role marker in ASL – specifically a celebrity of the role. It proposes that these non-manual characteristics act as a subject sonicity, that the subject`s sentence corresponds to this clietic and that it be interpreted with role importance in such a way that it marks the person from whose point of view the event is considered. . . .
