Phonological and morphological features of sign language – hearing participants’ perceptions on the learning process

Ioana TUFAR, Ioana Letiția ȘERBAN

Based on the investigation of the phonological and morphological characteristics of Sign Language and on past research regarding students’ perception on the learning process, this paper presents the perception of 87 Romanian students on the acquisition process of the Romanian Sign Language. The study involved participants who followed and graduated a basic training course in Romanian Sign Language. Examining the resulting data, recommendations were drawn up regarding the teaching and the learning process of sign language according to the phonological, morphological, and semantical characteristics and explaining the involvement of iconicity in this process.

Keywords: sign language, phonology, morphology, semantics, iconicity
