Page 18 The Interplay Between Perceptual and Linguistic Processes To investigate the relation between basic perceptual and higher-order linguistic processes, the psychological representation of ASL movement by native deaf signers was contrasted with that of hearing nonsigners. Triads of ASL signs were presented as point-light displays, and subjects were asked to judge similarities between movements. Multidimensional scaling and hierarchical clustering of judgments for both groups of subjects revealed that the inflectional movements were perceived in terms of a limited number of underlying dimensions.

At this age, they make overgeneralizations to non-inflecting verbs, analogous to overgeneralizations like eated in the speech of hearing children. Such "errors" reveal the child's analysis of forms across the system. So, despite the difference in the form of spatial marking, the development and the age of mastery of the spatial inflection for verb agreement are the same in ASL as for comparable processes in spoken languages. Spatially Organized Syntax and Discourse The integration of the pronominal reference and spatial verb agreement systems in the sentences and discourse of ASL is highly complex.
