Funding Information:
2 This study was supported by a Grant from the Israeli Science Foundation (#553/04) to Irit Meir. 3 Signs such as GIVE move from the signer’s body outwards, and signs such as TAKE move from the signing space towards the signer’s torso. In the following description of transfer verbs, I refer mainly to GIVE-type verbs, for ease of presentation. But the description and explanation hold of TAKE-type verbs too.
