Sign Language Annotation, Archiving and Sharing (SLAASh)

ID: 2617
Status: Ongoing
Start date: September 2014
End Date: August 2019

Description

SLAASh focuses on the construction of infrastructure to support the archiving and distribution of sign language corpora, focusing upon previously collected longitudinal samples of the development of child ASL. It is also developing the ASL Signbank, an online resource to maintain ID glosses, unique identifiers for signs that enable machine-readability that also serves as a lexical database in which information is stored about each sign. ASL Signbank can be used to create a continually-updated ECV for ELAN (meaning that people who annotate ASL videos can use ASL Signbank and don't need to create their own).
