ABSTRACT

[Purpose] [Method] This study analyzed the 139 haptic signals in “Haptic Signals: 139 new and known signals” to investigate the frequency of use of Danish haptic signals by subject, the locations in which signals are given, handshapes, and the use of Danish sign language. [Result] Results were as follows. In terms of subject, 43 words were related to persons, 18 were related to rooms and surroundings, 11 were related to color, 16 were related to food and beverage, 9 were related to computers and smartphones, and 5 were related to medical care. The remaining 37 words were related to other signals. A total of 67 circumstantiation words were identified. In terms of location, 63 words were given on the back, 51 words were expressed on the arms, 19 words were given on the shoulders, and 6 words were expressed on the back of the hands placed on the legs. In terms of handshapes were found, with type 1, type 9, and open-palm handshapes being the most frequently used. A total of 33 words reflecting the handshape forms and direction of Danish sign language. [Conclusion] The study’s results indicate the need for further research on Korean haptic signals, particularly regarding the identification of words worth borrowing for use in Korean haptic signals. Studies comparing the handshape patterns of various countries’ haptic signals are also required.
