La fonction poétique dans les langues des signes

Marion Blondel
p. 9-28


Work on poetic function in sign languages was underway in the 70’s. The goal of this article is to present the various points addressed on this subject since these early studies and to propose a new perspective which focuses on the study of a corpus of nursery rhymes in LSF. The hypothesis which emerges from this study puts rhythm at the heart of poetic structure, suggesting that it is a common property of poetry in different modalities.
