Metasemiotic Regimentation in the Standardization of Nepali Sign Language
Because of the importance of protecting the privacy of my research participants, I have served as a model signer in reenactments of the signing (and speaking) in the two transcripts featured in the article. While my efforts necessarily fail to convey the ethnographic context of these classroom performances, I hope they will assist readers in understanding the formal properties of signed communication in Nepal’s Deaf institutions.
