great job! a few comments:

  • wouldn't the best comparison to make be between ASL/English bilinguals and bilinguals who know two spoken languages?
  • I think what your challenge will be is to relate the theories you mentioned (which I'm not totally clear on yet) to ASL, becausee I think they were formulated (at least implicitly) in regard to spoken language
  • make sure you differentiate between “baby sign” and acquisition of ASL - are they really the same thing?
  • Also, are you going to include any information on language processing by adult bilingual signers? This would be most useful, since we also have other groups working on the developmental aspects of similar topics

if you have questions about how to address this, post them here, or email me
