The feature of language that allows users to refer to different time periods is known as displacement. Other communication systems generally are restricted to present and immediate situations. It is true that the dance that bees perform may refer to a food source not in the immediate vicinity, but the reference is nonetheless to a fairly immediate entity.

Language distinguishes itself by allowing references to events and entities not immediately present, and to past, future, and conditional events and entities.

The sign begins with a C handshape and ends with an S handshape, and the palm orientation begins with the palm facing left and ends with the palm facing downward. Not all signs have a hold-movement-hold (H M H) structure (see Table 1). While there are at least six possible sign structures, H M is not among them (see Figure 16). As you can see, not all combinations are acceptable in the structure of the language. Though the details of the complete Liddell and Johnson Movement– Hold system are beyond the scope of this course, it is important to understand three basic components of the system.

In Stokoe’s system, cheremes were written down in a specific order—TD s. That is, the location of the sign (tab) was written first, followed by the handshape (dez), and then the movement (sig). For example, the sign idea is written as follows: ∩I^ ∩ indicates the forehead location, I represents the handshape, and ^ represents the upward movement. Stokoe’s system allows for some variations on the basic TD s representation of signs. Signs with two hands are represented as TDD s (for example, with); signs with one movement and then another are shown as TD ss (for example, million).
