From para-informational to meta-informational. While the last two contributions are essentially theoretical in their approach, the analytical studies containedin this thirdvolume are also often basedon new theoretical departures. This is particularly evident in the investigations into gestural iconicity, sign language, sign poetry, intermedial iconicity and the iconicity of metaphor. We believe that this new collection will add a further 18 OLGA FISCHER AND WOLFGANG G. MÜLLER stimulus to research into the iconic nature of language as usedin spoken and signedlanguages andin literature.

The results of the bilinguals in the wordtask suggest that the sign language system somehow influences the vocal language system. Comparedto the hearing group the bilinguals showedfaster responses anda greater number of choices for word-picture combinations where the words corresponded to iconic signs. Thus, the semantic categories of bilinguals seem to be influenced by both language systems. In sum, the empirical findings provide evidence for a moderate version of linguistic relativity. Whereas most linguists — who concede the existence of iconicity in language — explain the relation between semantic structure and iconic aspects of linguistic form in terms of a linguistic reflection of conceptual or experiential structures, the results also indicate a reverse effect from language to semantic conceptualization.
