Elicited Spatial Descriptions

The Elicited Spatial Description Task requires subjects to describe a familiar environment (such as their bedroom). An RHD deaf signer with left neglect may show impeccable use of space for syntax and discourse, but may have markedly impaired room description, although all three functions use the same plane of signing space (Bellugi, Poizner, & Klima, 1993).
