Title: Sign Language and Linguistic Universals
Written By: Wendy Sandler
Diane Lillo-Martin
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521483956
Description:

Sign languages are of great interest to linguists because, while they are
produced by the same brain, their physical transmission differs greatly
from that of spoken languages. Wendy Sandler and Diane Lillo-Martin compare
spoken languages with those that are signed, in order to seek universal
properties of human languages. No prior background in sign language
linguistics is assumed, and numerous pictures are provided to make
descriptions accessible to readers.
