【讲座简介】:

Language scholars in the early 20th century  regarded the distinction between language and gesture as categorical: whereas speech was seen to be language and not gesture, signs were determined to be gesture and not language. Grammaticalization theory allows us to go beyond their either/or questions concerning language and gesture. In this lecture, Professor Wilcox will examine the developmental route by which gestures become lexicalized and then grammaticalized in signed languages (Route 1). He will also discuss data that reveal a second way (Route 2) in which gestural material becomes incorporated into the linguistic system of signed languages, first entering the system as prosody and intonation and then grammaticalizing as grammatical markers so as topic markers, conditionals, and verb aspectual markers.
