Message 2: ASL Digital Video Data

Date: Mon, 8 May 2000 20:34:37 -0400 (EDT)
From: Carol Neidle <carollouis-xiv.bu.edu>
Subject: ASL Digital Video Data


Hello,

I would like to announce the availability of digital video data
corresponding to the ASL constructions (as signed by native signers)
discussed in two recent publications:

 Neidle, C., J. Kegl, D. MacLaughlin, B. Bahan, and R.G. Lee (2000)
 The Syntax of American Sign Language: Functional Categories
 and Hierarchical Structure. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press.

 Bahan, B., J. Kegl, R.G. Lee, D. MacLaughlin, and C. Neidle (2000) 
 The Licensing of Null Arguments in American Sign Language. 
 Linguistic Inquiry 31:1, 1-27.

These examples are now available at our Web site and on CD-ROM, along
with other electronic documents and video data corresponding to many
other publications of the American Sign Language Linguistic Research
Project. See http://www.bu.edu/asllrp .

Many of the examples just made available were collected in our new
facility. For those sentences, multiple views of the signer are
provided; in addition, these data are available in various video
formats. For more information about the National Center for Sign
Language and Gesture Resources, see http://www.bu.edu/asllrp/ncslgr.html .

These projects have been supported, in part, by grants from the
National Science Foundation.
