1 Sign Language Linguistics 27910/37910 Instructor: Jordan Fenlon Office hours: Thursdays, 10:45-11:45 Winter quarter: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00-10:20 The course introduces students to sign languages through the core areas of linguistics (e.g., phonology, morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics and pragmatics) and with a focus on two sign languages: American Sign Language and British Sign Language. The course will cover a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of sign languages and address questions such as: 'What impact does communication modality have on language?', 'Why is the study of sign language important for understanding linguistic universals?', and 'What is the relationship between sign language and gesture?'. No previous knowledge of sign language is assumed. Course texts Pfau, R., M. Steinbach and B. Woll (eds), Sign Language: An International Handbook. Berlin: Mouton de Gruyter, Johnston, T. and A.
