Classifier structures are common to signal languages and convey targeted houses that come up from the character of the visual-gestural modality. the main targets are to convey to mild severe matters relating to the research of classifier structures and to provide state of the art linguistic and psycholinguistic analyses of those structures. it really is was hoping that via doing so, extra researchers should be encouraged to enquire the character of classifier buildings throughout signed languages and additional discover the original features of those varieties. The papers during this quantity talk about the subsequent concerns: *how signal language classifiers vary from spoken languages; *cross-linguistic edition in signal language classifier platforms; *the function of gesture; *the nature of morpho-syntactic and phonological constraints on classifier buildings; *the grammaticization technique for those kinds; and *the acquisition of classifier kinds. Divided into 4 elements, teams of papers concentrate on a specific set of matters, and observation papers finish every one part.
