This article discusses the role of eye gaze in creative sign language. Because eye gaze conveys various types of linguistic and poetic information,it is an intrinsic part of sign language linguistics in generaland of creative signing in particular. We discuss various functions ofeyegaze in poetic signing and propose a classification of gaze behaviorsbased on the observation of a number of poems in British SignLanguage and Swedish Sign Language.
