Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 281
Description:

Signed language users can draw on a range of articulators when expressing
linguistic messages, including the hands, torso, eye gaze, and mouth.
Sometimes these articulators work in tandem to produce one lexical item
while in other instances they operate to convey different types of
information simultaneously. Over the past fifteen years, there has been a
growing interest in the issue of simultaneity in signed languages. However,
this book is the first to offer a comprehensive treatment of this topic,
presenting a collection of papers dealing with different aspects of
simultaneity in a range of related and unrelated signed languages, in
descriptive and cross-linguistic treatments which are set in different
theoretical frameworks. This volume has relevance for those interested in
sign linguistics, in teaching and learning signed languages, and is also
highly recommended to anyone interested in the fundamental underpinnings of
human language and the effects of signed versus spoken modality.
