This paper focuses on the properties of command constructions in Turkish Sign Language (TİD). The nature and function of manual signs and nonmanual markers in command constructions in TİD are investigated to determine their prosodic, morphological, morphophonological, and syntactic properties. We show that TİD does not utilize any of the properties reported in the literature as an obligatory marker of commands in some spoken and sign languages. The only salient marker of commands we have identified is a nonmanual marker: (forward/sideward) head tilt.

Bu çalışmada Türk İşaret Dili’ndeki (TİD) emir yapıları incelenmektedir.  Çalışmada TİD emir yapılarının ezgisel, biçimbirimsel, biçim-sesbilimsel ve sözdizimsel özelliklerini belirlemek amacıyla bu yapıların el ve el-dışı işaretlerinin niteliği ve işlevleri incelenmektedir. Bazı işitsel ve işaret dillerindeki emir yapılarında zorunlu oldukları belirlenmiş olan özelliklerden hiçbirini TİD’in yansıtmadığı gözlemlenmiştir. TİD emir yapılarının en belirgin özelliğinin el-dışı işaret olan öne/yana baş eğmesi olduğu saptanmıştır.
