6th March 2017 – Conference on Endangered Languages

On 2-5 March, members of the Section for Sign Linguistics at the University of Warsaw took part in the International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in the United States. We gave two presentations: an electronic poster on managing the work of annotators, entitled "Issue Tracking Systems in Quality Management of Sign Language Corpus Data Annotation", and "In Search of Citation Forms: A preliminary corpus-based study of phonological variants in Polish Sign Language (PJM)", where we presented the results of a study on the lexical variants in PJM
The conference was very inspiring and we learned a lot about the protection of endangered languages.
