Thank you, Charles  ;-)

And congratulations to you and Rachel Channon and the SignTyp project team members, for the acceptance of your poster presentation at TISLR 2010 as well...

I believe the title of your poster presentation is:

"Transcription Systems As Input To Coding Systems: Signwriting & Signtyp"

Is this correct?

The SignTyp project (see Rachel's message below) will be an important step forward for SignWriting and SignPuddle, integrating with the SignTyp linguistic database for multiple sign languages, directed by Rachel Channon and Dr. Harry van der Hulst from the University of Connecticut:


At the TISLR, I hope you can take photos of the posters with the authors and presenters standing right next to the posters...we did that for a conference in Lisbon in 2004, and then I created a web area for each presentation with photos...it is a good historic record and is also informative because we can refer to each poster and look at the details of the poster in the photos...

Val ;-)

The goal is to create videotapes of signs of different languages and SignWriting transcriptions of these videotapes. The results of this work will be web-based dictionaries for each sign language as well as a research database.  Each dictionary will include pictorial descriptions of the concept, SignWriting transcriptions and glosses in both English and the language spoken in the same area as the sign language, and records for SignTyp, the research database.  The project should therefore provide material which will be useful to deaf people, to students of the language, and to researchers.

We would provide a word list (mostly as pictures), and we would be able to pay something to you and to the person being videotaped. If you are interested or would like more information, please email me at rchannon at speakeasy.net.
