Abstract Inflections may be interpolated into signed sequences by adding fingerspelled English inflectional morphemes to signs and fingerspelling irregular forms in which the bound morpheme is changed (grapheme modified signing), or by introducing signs corresponding to the major English inflections which can be associated with existing or newly coined bound morphemes (systematically inflected signing). The SIS method may be much less complex than GMS if it does not attempt to provide cues to the spoken form, or it may be painstakingly matched to the production features of speech at the risk of increasing its complexity. Further knowledge on the extent to which inflected signs may be systematized and on the extent to which integration of SIS and GMS may be desirable is contingent upon research into the production, decoding and ease of learning parameters of gestural communication.
