dc.description.abstract Sign languages are natural visual-gestural languages comparable to other natural spoken languages. Although sign languages share many common universal features, considerable variation may be found amongst them. In this article the phonology, morphology, syntax and certain discourse features of sign languages and other natural languages are compared. Evidence is presented to demonstrate that both spoken and signed languages involve similar processes and rules regardless of the languages' modalities. en_US
