Workshop Nonmanuals at the Gesture Sign Interface (NaGSI)

October 9-10, 2015, University of Göttingen
Welcome video

In the last 10-15 years, research on sign languages has shown an increasing interest in nonmanual articulators. Nonmanuals express a variety of important linguistic functions and they play a crucial role at all levels of the grammar of sign languages. In this workshop, we will bring together scholars interested in formal and functional properties of nonmanuals at the interface between gesture and language in spoken and sign languages.
