5th March 2018 – visit by guests from Czech Republic

From 28 February to 2 March, the UW Section for Sign Linguistics was honored to host Jakub Jehlička, Hana Prokšová and Lucie Stanovská from Charles University in Prague. They participated in working meetings with our team and presented their own research to UW students. Our colleagues from Prague are planning to launch work on creating a corpus for Czech Sign Language, modeled after the Polish Sign Language corpus. It is perhaps worth noting that the corpus put together by our team is currently one of the two largest such corpora in the world.
