Signed language users can draw on a range of articulators when expressing
linguistic messages, including the hands, torso, eye gaze, and mouth.
Sometimes these articulators work in tandem to produce one lexical item
while in other instances they operate to convey different types of
information simultaneously. Over the past fifteen years, there has been a
growing interest in the issue of simultaneity in signed languages. However,
this book is the first to offer a comprehensive treatment of this topic,
presenting a collection of papers dealing with different aspects of
simultaneity in a range of related and unrelated signed languages, in
descriptive and cross-linguistic treatments which are set in different
theoretical frameworks. This volume has relevance for those interested in
sign linguistics, in teaching and learning signed languages, and is also
highly recommended to anyone interested in the fundamental underpinnings of
human language and the effects of signed versus spoken modality.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
