Query Subject:   Acadmic discourse in sign language
Author:   Gillian Moss
Submitter Email:  click here to access email
Subject Language(s):  Colombian Sign Language

Query:   I have been asked to tutor a module on Written Discourse Analysis for a Colombian colleague who is doing PhD research on sign language and, in particular, is interested in the possibility of developing academic discourse patterns in sign language. My intention is for us to look at the characteristics of academic discourse in general and at the historical development of academic discourse in order then to look at ways in which these characteristics could be developed in sign language. I would be very interested to know if anyone knows of any other studies on academic discourse in sign language.
Many thanks for your help.
