Dissertation Abstract:

This dissertation presents new data from Kata Kolok, a sign language which
emerged in a village community of North Bali, and has been the primary means of
communication for at least five generations of deaf, native signers (Marsaja 2008;
this thesis). Supported by extensive periods of linguistic fieldwork, corpus analysis,
as well as targetted, stimulus-based elicitation, it supports the claim that Kata Kolok
signers structure their spatial reference system preferentially on the basis of
geographical locations.
