Semantic Representations of Situations that Fit their Description in a Sign Language
We learn by experience, that is to say we memorize a great amount of situations we have been involved in, while learning language.
Experience is memorized through spatio-temporal means which are nearer from the linguistic expression conveyed by sign languages (American Sign Language or French Sign Language) than from linguistic expression conveyed by the traditional linear vocal languages (English or French.)
Our final purpose is to be able to “understand” a sentence expressed in French Sign Language, ie to build the representation of the situation described in the sentence, using the information carried by the sentence, and also every information already memorized in the individual previous experience.
