Why should phonologists, who above all else are fascinated with the way things sound, care about systems without sound? The short answer is that the organization of phonological material is as interesting as the phonological material itself — whether it is of spoken or sign languages. Moreover, certain aspects of work on spoken languages can be seen in a surprising new light, because sign languages offer a new range of possibilities both articulatorily and perceptually.
