DOI: doi.org/10.1515/thli.2011.016 While there is no inversion of grammatical functions in BAVs, it is certain that as far as the agreement is concerned, the object is treated as the subject and vice versa, which allows us to face a change of convention. We will analyse the coherence of BAVs and the difference between VSRs and BAVs using an approach developed in the context of agativity (cf. Lourenço 2015 for a related idea and Pavlič 2016 for an analysis of reflexive ditransitives.32 Of course, the agreement in SL, where there is no (normally) concordance in opaque clauses, is not a reasonable way to obtain, because this agreement does not treat transitive objects and intransigent subjects in the same way. Nevertheless, we take into account the lessons learned from Müller`s (2009) approach to ergativity, which proposes that the orientation (i.e. direct/exact vs. inversely/ergativ) is syntactically determined by the order of operations at v:v must perform two operations, it has an Agree probe and introduces the external argument. It is proposed that different orders of these two operations lead to different alignments, see (24): Peacock, Roland. 2016.

Thirdly, the SL agreement may also have a territorial and thematic origin, as it often expresses transfer relations. This transparent thematic basis seems to have paved the way for a semantic implementation of convergence in SLs, as proposed by Meir (1998; 2002) and may have initially motivated the different classes of verbs. In a second step, the systematic and transversal implementation of the thematic agreement with the RAVs could have triggered the grammar of the characteristics of the agreement. Finally, in some SLs, the emergence of agreement auxiliaries appears to be the final step towards a fully grammatical synactic tuning system, as described in section 4 above for Deposit Guarantee Schemes. A solid sphere represents the flexion of the central joint of a finger or fingers, and a hollow sphere represents the straightening of a bent finger. In other words, a ”D” hand with a solid sphere means that it becomes an ”X” hand, while an ”X” hand with a hollow sphere means that it becomes a ”D” hand. If the fingers are already bent, a solid ball shows that they are pressing.
For example, a square (closed fist, hand ”S”) with double rigid balls is the sign of ”milk” (iconically, squeezing a udder). On the whole, however, sign languages are independent of spoken languages and follow their own paths of development. For example, British Sign Language (BSL) and American Sign Language (ASL) are very different and mutually incomprehensible, although people who hear the UK and the US share the same spoken language. the grammars of sign languages are generally not similar to those of spoken languages used in the same geographical area; In terms of syntax, ASL has more to share with spoken Japanese than with English.
