I was wondering if anyone had a view on what is the same
throughout all sign languages. I know in each language although some
are similar that the hand shapes and movements for a particular sign are
all different. But I am wondering what I can find that is the same. I
am thinking here from a view that maybe facial expressions defining
emotion are similar even the hand shapes of the sign are different but
then not all signs have a facial expression so what about sign location
in space. I'm not looking for any hard and fast rules just
generalisations if there are any???? If anybody has an opinion just let
me know .....
