This book is the first to explore how much of knowledge based on research
on spoken languages needs to be refined in the light of the growing field
of sign linguistics. Drawing upon a broad cross-linguistic perspective, the
contributors focus on topics of general theoretical interest: linearity and
arbitrariness principles, definition of units and levels of analysis,
expression of grammatical categories, semantic relations, and cohesion
mechanisms. The book is of interest to language typologists, theoretical
and descriptive linguists, scholars in the fields of semiotics,
anthropology, gesture studies, and cognitive sciences at large.
