abstract
In this study certain grammatical aspects of Flemish-Belgian Sign Language will be contrasted with comparable aspects in Dutch. The following areas still need to be focussed on: basic word order (SVO, SOV, SVSV?), complex sentences and negation. To do this a sign language corpus will be created which will be transcribed so that a contrastive analysis Flemish-Belgian Sign Language-Dutch can be executed.
