    NEW TITLE FROM SIGNUM VERLAG

    Mesch, Johanna: Tactile Sign Language. Turn-taking and questions in signed conversations of deaf-blind people. PB.: 3-927731-80-3; xv, 256 pp.; EUR 23,00. Signum Verlag.

    Tactile sign language significantly differs from the visual mode of sign language. Based on conversation analysis of deaf-blind dyads, this book describes how turn-taking and interrogative sentences are marked in tactile sign language. Deaf-blind signers are in continuous contact by holding one another's hands in monologue or dialogue position. In tactile conversation, non-manual characteristics, the essential markers in visual sign languages, are effectively replaced by various hand movements.

    NEW TITLE FROM SIGNUM VERLAG

    Boyes Braem, Penny and Rachel Sutton-Spence (eds): The Hands are the Head of the Mouth . The Mouth as Articulator in Sign Languages. PB.: 3-927731-83-8; vi, 325 pp.; EUR 27,60. Signum Verlag.

    This book stems from a workshop on the use of the mouth in European sign languages held at the University of Leiden, in The Netherlands, in December 1998. It reflects several areas of particular interest with respect to mouth patterns in sign languages: The meaning of terms which is not always immediately obvious in this respect, the use of Notation systems for mouth patterns, the consistency of mouthings and mouth gestures, especially in relation to the methodology used as well as situational, regional and social variation and the linguistic biography of the informant, and the status of the mouth patterns that come from spoken languages.
