dc.description.abstractFirst, you must accept that Dance is a language. A language with nouns, verbs, adjectives, syntax and all other common features of linguistics. Dance is a communication and this paper explores the dialogue it shares with British Sign Language. By providing a 'poetic representation' of this research, the term 'expression' is expanded to a molecular level and is examined/questioned/understood in new ways throughout the reader’s journey. Through an examination of these constructs the research uncovers much less a contribution as the title would suggest, but instead; enhancements of the existing structures available in each native language, which can merge and be applied to their counterpart – deepening the user’s understanding and the connection they share with their own language. After tracing both Dance Language and British Sign language to its roots and then to its respective users, the research arrives at an account of language perception and production that is fit for the purpose and functions that the research question proposes.en_US
