Lexical Borrowing in American Sign Language (LB) is one of the best books available on the subject of sign language phonology because both specialists and non-specialists can read it. And even though it is now twenty-five years since LB was first published (as a dissertation), the data, methods, and analyses still hold up under scrutiny. LB presents a picture of the state of the art of sign language linguistics in the mid-1970s in a single author’s voice, and reading it today helps us to better understand what has happened in the intervening decades: Surprisingly little in some respects, a great deal in others.
