Overview

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 American Sign Language (ASL).

It is also developing the ASL Signbank, an online resource to maintain ID glosses. These unique identifiers for signs that enable machine readability also serve 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).
