Descripción: 

This article summarizes a PhD thesis on three discourse markers, namely buoys, PALM-UP and the sign SAME, in two sign languages: French Belgian Sign Language (LSFB) and Catalan Sign Language (LSC). The intra- and inter-linguistic differences and similarities of the three discourse markers are examined at the level of their distribution per genre and per signer, their functions and their position in discourse. For this purpose, this paper also presents a segmentation methodology based on syntax and prosody.
