Existential Sentences in Flemish Sign Language and Finnish Sign Language

My research focuses on expressing the function of existence in Flemish Sign Language (VGT) and Finnish Sign Language (FinSL). This study mainly aims to investigate 1. the different ways of expressing existence in both sign languages, 2. the internal structure of existential constructions in both sign languages and 3. the differences and similarities on existential constructions between these sign languages.
