Verb Agreement In Sign Language

12 But see Mathur and Rathmann (2010) for an argument that sign language chord actually exhibits almost all the qualities of canonical tuning systems.

Another proposition assumes that the emergence of consensus in established sign languages is due to colialization or the inclusion of pronouns – a means of grammar flexion in many spoken languages (Fischer 1975); Pfau and Steinbach 2006).

Taking directionality into account as a clitization could be useful by taking into account some of the non-canonical concordance characteristics mentioned in point 6.1 (see Nevins 2009). However, the existence of regression in both established and young sign languages (Aronoff et al. 2004) is a challenge for such an approach. In these types of verbs, the subject pronoun that appears before the verb (for S-O languages) does not share a place with the beginning of the verb; Similarly, the final location of the verb does not match the location of the object. Quadros and Quer (2010) proposed a possible explanation for the differential evolution of the reality of reverse direction. They suggested that the backward falls come from the manipulation of verbs and that they actually mark the location agreement and not the subject-object concordance. This view can be easily extended to the reference capacity. .
