According to scientific literature and language materials, affixation (type of word formation) can be seen in Georgian Sign Language – GESL. Morphosemantics of the Destination Sign (an affix found in GESL) will be discussed in the paper. The material of GESL is sufficient to consider the sign as a derivational affix and name it as a ‘Destination affix’ - DS. Its main morphosemantic feature is to produce adjectives or nouns with possessive-destination-purpose semantics.
