Abstract

The present paper reviews the main approaches developed for the linguistic analysis of sign languages, discussing the different theoretical assumptions and methodological implications applied along with the history of sign language studies. Sign language research demanded a revolution in some core beliefs of language, namely the linearity of speech, discreteness, and arbitrariness, providing a new way to look at the nature of language.
