The papers in this volume are a selection of the presentations given at the seventh international conference on Theoretical Issues in Sign Language Research.

This meeting, known as TISLR, was held for the first time in its history in Europe – in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from July 22nd to July 27th, 2000. The topic chosen for the meeting and for this volume is cross-linguistic aspects of sign language research. This choice reflects the status quo in the sign linguistics field, as was emphasized by the first guest speaker, Professor Bencie Woll from City University London.
