In this paper, we analyze and compare the patterns of sentential negation and the interaction of negation with modal verbs in two unrelated sign languages, namely Catalan Sign Language (Llengua de Signes Catalana: LSC) and German Sign Language (Deutsche Gebärdensprache: DGS), and we give an account of the attested cross-linguistic variation on  morphosyntactic grounds.
