Abstract [en]

Signing space in tactile signing for persons with acquired deafblindness - a pilot study

The article describes how signing space is used in tactile Swedish Sign Language. Signers with acquired deafblindness, partly or fully deaf-blind, who have grown up using sign language, communicate with each other and other people who use sign language with hand contact and using signing space (the so-called spatial room) as a joint signing space. The signing space has two different functions - both for turn-taking and also for the produc­tion of signs in the neutral position in front of the signer, with the possibi­lity of modifying the direction/location of the articulator/s. The spatial part of the sign language also has an important role in the creation of mental images (pictures), which requires a visual concept.
