 +This study looked at if the absence of determiners in sign language effect how well participants can process language. From this study, we gathered the following:
 +
 +  * Although the determiners are basically non existent in ASL, it doesn’t have an effect on how    sentences are processed by the communicators. ​
 +  * In this study, FMRI was used to investigate the areas activated by signed narratives in non signing subjects compared to activation in people when hearing speech in their native tongue.
 +  * It was found that the same areas were activated whether sign language or spoken language was the means of communication.
 +  * The gestures shape the lexicon and semantics of signed speech in the same way that our extra words, such as determiners,​ shape our spoken language .
