Linguistica generale e lingue segnate

Qualche ponte per una riflessione comune

Despite persistent uninformed and unscientific beliefs, the status of sign languages as proper languages has been deeply recognised by contemporary research. However, from the point of view of modern Linguistics, the peculiar properties of sign languages pose a challenge to some traditional notions which have been employed so far to describe linguistic phenomena. The present paper explores some key-concepts in Linguistics which should be redefined, such as phonetics, channel, and the relationship between signifier and signified, and suggests ways in which these notions could be reconceptualized in order to be ‘descriptively inclusive’ of all natural languages.
