Classifier constructions are universal to sign languages and exhibit
unique properties that arise from the nature of the visual-gestural
modality. The major goals are to highlight critical issues related to
the study of classifier constructions and to present state-of-the-art
linguistic and psycholinguistic analyses of these constructions. It is
hoped that by doing so, more researchers will be inspired to
investigate the nature of classifier constructions across signed
languages and further explore the unique aspects of these forms.

Lingfield(s):	Psycholinguistics 			 

Written In:	English (Language Code: ENG)
