Linguistics of American Sign Language Text: An Introduction, 3rd Edition

Since its first edition appeared in 1992, Valli and Lucas’s Linguistics of American Sign Language: An introduction has been the premier work for students of the structure of American Sign Language. Written for students of linguistics who already have at least some knowledge of American Sign Language, this third edition includes sections introducing students to basic linguistic concepts, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics as well as issues related to language change, language variation, bilingualism, discourse, language contact, and “language as art.”

Each section is designed to provide students with a general introduction to the linguistic concepts and then to the specific case of American Sign Language, including exercises focusing on American Sign Language. Finally, more than half of the volume is devoted to both classic and recent seminal articles about different aspects of the linguistics of American Sign Language. As has been true of both of the earlier editions, this third edition of Linguistics of American Sign Language Text accompanied by a well-made videotape providing additional support for the written text.

Features include:

  • Coverage of ASL linguistics.
  • Integrated DVD videos for visual learning.
  • Updated content reflecting the latest research.
