Considerable effort has been devoted to exploring the striking parallels between the structure of spoken languages and sign languages on virtually every level. There is, however, one aspect of ASL for which there exists no obvious parallel in any spoken language. ASL, and apparently al other natural sign languages, allow signers to produce signs at, or direct signs toward, different locations within the signing space to indicate specific referents or to show specific locations.
