1.Fundamental Signs of JSL and its levels
Referring the previous studies, 634 signs were selected as the candidates.Most frequent 100 signs in them are selected as the First Level signs, the next 235 signs adding 135 to them, for the Second Level, 380 signs for the Third Level.In the Fourth Leve, the 27 numerical signs and the 5 country signs frequently used are added to the candidate 634 signs.
2.Citation forms, movie data and phonological descriptions
The citation form of every sign is determined with helps of the informants comparing to the local sign.The result was video-recorded and filed as its movie data.Each movie of a sign was described to be phonological data.
3.Morphological data and making database
Referring the movie data and the phonological data with the researcher's intuition and the informants, the morpholocial structure of each sign was described as the morphological data.The database of JSL fundamental signs was constructed with the items of Japanese entry, phonological description, morphological description, part of speech, synonyms and English entry.
Studying the database, a general model of morphological structure of JSL signs was proposed and presented to some symposiums.
