SLs vs. Gestures with  Speech Internal phonology of handshapes where speech  gestures have none Ex: APPLE vs CANDY; APPLE uses ‘X’ handshape Secondary movement (circling, wiggling, etc.)  governed by constraints Constraints determine whether the sign is grammatical  or ungrammatical Different from sign, speech gestures do not carry  constraints and thus do not affect grammaticality
