Жесты формы и размера в русском жестовом языке

Рема. 2017. Т. 1. С. 41-60.
Кюсева М. В.

The article proposes an analysis of three semantic fields in Russian Sign Language (RSL): ‘thick’, ‘thin’ and ‘pointed’. These fields are covered in RSL with a particular group of signs, namely, size and shape specifiers (SASSes). The paper describes features of SASSes in other sign languages, known from previous research, and proposes an analysis of these signs in RSL based on a detailed study of their contexts. Particularly, the article argues for distinguishing two types of components in these signs (specified and non-specified ones), discusses the semantics of non-manual markers and describes two morphological forms of SASSes.
