Abstract

This study aims at describing the use of repetitions in spontaneous conversation in French Belgian Sign Language (LSFB). All occurrences of repetitions are taken into account in the productions of 18 signers taken from the Corpus LSFB, in order to provide as complete an overview as possible on how repetition contributes respectively to the grammatical, the semantic and the pragmatic level of discourse structure. One of the contribution of this work lies in the formal and functional typology of repetitions that it offers. The results show that all signers make a similar use of repetitions, which provides a common style to their discourses.
