Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) The words in signed languages are composed of, at least, the handshape, movement, and location components. It is often the case that some componental elements all band together to create a well-formed word. To discuss the interactions, we need to handle qualitatively different components all together in a uniform manner. This paper proposes the concept complexity, and shows that how well the complexity-based approach can explain the interactions of the componental elements. It has also revealed that well-formed words have a certain amount of complexity or less while theoretically possible but unattested words have complexity that exceeds the threshold.
