COMING SOON: SUMMER SCHOOL LINGUISTICS with SL fieldwork course!
Teachers: Connie de Vos (Nijmegen), Victoria Nyst (Leiden), Nick Palfreyman (Islands) Introduction to sign linguistics and sign language fieldwork
Organizational support: Lotte Bijloo (Leiden), Felisa Jurado (Leiden)
This course provides a training in linguistic fieldwork on sign languages. The first week of the course will consist of an introduction into sign language fieldwork and exercises with tools for sign language annotation (ELAN, HamNoSys, FACS). The second week will be a hands-on training with a Deaf signer of Chinese Sign Language, with a focus on lexical typology. Since we are looking for funds to arrange for sign language interpretation, please indicate whether you need an interpreter. This course accommodates students with and without a background in sign language linguistics.
