  1. Fascinating article. I know very little about ASL, but I found myself wondering if making the signs closer to the face also allows the “speaker” to be more precise in the forming of their handshapes (because they’re getting more visual feedback as they form the sign), and does that precision, in turn, facilitate better understanding for the perceiver?

    Can’t wait to see what else emerges from this research.
