This chapter focuses on methodological innovations in the MULTISIGN project, a three-part study that examined a range of complex multilingual behaviours in sign language users, including “cross-signing”, “sign-speaking”, and
“sign-switching”. Two main innovative features are explored in this chapter: the post-hoc interviews in the cross-signing strand (7.1), and the elicitation materials and procedures used in all three strands (7.2), including cultural adaptations to the local environment.
