Whole-Entity Classifiers in Sign Languages: A Multiperspective Approach
This meeting is held by our Young CAS Fellow Vadim Kimmelman (UiB).
For invited participants only.
The workshop is devoted to discussing ongoing research on two issues concerning classifier predicates: the choice of classifier handshape in case of synonymous classifiers, and the meaning contribution of the components of classifier predicates.
