Title: Sign Languages of the Indian Subcontinent
Written By: Ulrike Zeshan
Description:

This is the first extensive documentation of a non-Western sign language on all relevant levels of linguistic description. The topics covered range from morphology and syntax (word classes, grammatical relations, sentence types, etc.) to sign language specific issues such as the use of space and facial expressions in the grammar. Sociolinguistic data, a lexical comparison of regional varieties, the analysis of discourse features and many graphics and examples round off the volume.
