Dear fellow Linguists;
 
It is a great honor to introduce you to a new research institute that
has its headquarters in San Juan, a province in the north-west of
Argentina, South America.

We are concerned mainly with problems of Teaching English as a Foreign
Language (TEFL). We do research on Foreign Language Learning and
coordinate courses and debates on different topics within this general
subject.

A lot of information as regards the current state of the art is
available to all those who are interested. Also, it would be
interesting to carry out joint ventures as regards research with other
people around the world.

Please, feel free to contact us through my email address:
 
 Leo Ferres
 email: aleoferffha.unsj.edu.ar

Thank you very much, and we sincerely hope that we can share
information and stregthen communication.

Subject: ASLLRP / SignStream


The American Sign Language Linguistic Research Project involves
researchers from Boston University, Gallaudet University, and Rutgers
University working together on the syntax of ASL. In addition, in
collaboration with Dartmouth College, we are developing a tool called
SignStream for the coding and analysis of video-based data.

General information about this project is available at our Web site:
<http://www.bu.edu/ASLLRP/;.
 
A number of reports and doctoral dissertations are now available in
portable document format (pdf) and can be downloaded from this site:

 Language. Doctoral Dissertation, Boston University, Boston, MA.

With respect to the SignStream project
<http://www.bu.edu/ASLLRP/SignStream>;, we would be especially
interested to receive feedback as to features that potential users
(linguists working with video-based data) might find useful, to assist
us with ongoing design and development.
