Examples of Auslan sentences
Below you will find video clips of all the glossed (written) Auslan examples found in the book:
Johnston, T., & Schembri, A. (2007). Australian Sign Language (Auslan): An introduction to sign language linguistics. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
This book introduces the structure of Auslan and other signed languages (its vocabulary and its grammar) to students of language and general linguistics.
It also provides learners of Auslan with accessible information about how signs are made (phonology and morphology), what the different types of signs found in the language are (fixed and productive vocabulary, as well as gesture), and the way signs are put together to make sentences and tell stories (grammar and discourse).
