|Frequency of Occurrence and Ease of Articulation of Sign Language Handshapes|
From The Midwest Book Review
Written by Jean Ann (assoc. professor in the Dept. of Curriculum and Instruction, SUNY Oswego), Frequency of Occurrence and Ease of Articulation of Sign Language Handshapes: The Taiwanese Example is a contribution to sign language linguistics research that particularly examines Taiwanese Sign Language in its search to discover whether the use of specific sign language handshapes increases in direct relation to the ease of their physical formation. Chapters discuss the anatomy and physiology of the human hand, followed by a basic model of ease of handshape articulation, and go on to compare ease of frequency at length. A scholarly, in-depth study and a welcome addition to linguistics reference shelves, particularly those concerning sign language.
Jean Ann is Associate Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, SUNY Oswego, in Oswego, NY.
