Topic: Syntactic structure of JSL sentence with Referential Shift
By S. MORI and A. Kazumi
Sandler, Wendy, and Diane Lillo-Martin (2006) discussed about RS structures in Signed Language and following their discussions, we tried to study the structure in JSL. What are the features of JSL sentence with Referential Shift? We looked into data from native JSL signers and found some NMM patterns for its quotation features. There are Direct Quotation and Indirect Quotation in JSL. Then we tried to compare the features with that in ASL and found some difference between the two Sign Languages.
