Bimodal Bilingual Cross-Language Influence in Unexpected Domains, Diane Lillo-Martin, Ronice Müller de Quadros, Helen Koulidobrova & Chen Pichler (2009, link here)
This whole paper is really neat, especially examples like this where the bimodal bilinguals alter both the spoken and signed languages in order to make them line up better (note: vache “cow”, petite “small”).
In this example, the speech satisfies the French noun-adjective word order, while the sign satisfies the adjective-noun word order of LSQ [Langue des Signes Québécoise].

French: vache petite vache
LSQ: PETITE VACHE VACHE
