January 2012 − new project “ Iconicity in PJM grammar and lexis”

Thanks to financial support from National Science Centre we started new, extensive research project "Iconicity in PJM grammar and lexis".
The project will be held from 2012-2014. It will result in the emergence of the first in Poland sign language dictionary developed in accordance with lexicographic rules and standards and in harmony with the first descriptive grammar of PJM. The research is the effect of cooperation with four teams specialising in sign language linguistics inter alia from Milan, Hamburg, Barcelona and London, which took part in pan-European campaign COST IS 1006 „Unravelling the grammars of European sign languages: pathways to full citizenship of deaf signers and to the protection of their linguistic heritage”.
