LNGS 322: Introduction to Ghanaian Sign Language


The course will introduce students to the phonology and morphology of sign language in
general as well as some practical aspects of Ghanaian Sign Language (GSL). The course will
combine theory with practical work. There will be two hours of practical work each week
during which a sign language instructor will teach students how to sign. Topics to be treated
include: simple statements, adjectival predicates, kinship terms, polar questions, content
questions, negation, directional verbs, possession and modals.
