De Gruyter Mouton and Ishara Press are pleased to announce the co-
publication of two new series in sign linguistics.

Sign Languages and Deaf Communities (SLDC)
Series editors: Annika Herrmann, Markus Steinbach and Ulrike Zeshan

Over the past decades, the field of sign language linguistics has
expanded considerably. Recent research on sign languages includes a
wide range of subdomains such as reference grammars, theoretical
linguistics, psycho- and neurolinguistics, sociolinguistics, and applied
studies on sign languages and Deaf communities. The new series Sign
Languages and Deaf Communities is concerned with the study of sign
languages in a comprehensive way, covering various theoretical,
experimental, and applied dimensions of sign language research and
their relationship to Deaf communities around the world. This series
provides a multidisciplinary platform for innovative and outstanding
research in sign language linguistics and aims at linking the study of
sign languages to current trends in modern linguistics, such as new
experimental and theoretical investigations, the importance of
language endangerment, the impact of technological developments on
data collection and Deaf education, and the broadening geographical
scope of typological sign language studies, especially in terms of
research on non-Western sign languages and Deaf communities.

Sign Language Typology (SLT)
Series editors: Marie Coppola, Onno Crasborn and Ulrike Zeshan

The Sign Language Typology series is dedicated to the comparative
study of sign languages around the world. Individual or collective works
that systematically explore typological variation across sign languages
are the focus of this series, with particular emphasis on
undocumented, underdescribed and endangered sign languages. The
scope of the series primarily includes cross-linguistic studies of
grammatical domains across a larger or smaller sample of sign
languages, but also encompasses the study of individual sign
languages from a typological perspective and comparison between
signed and spoken languages in terms of language modality, as well
as theoretical and methodological contributions to sign language
