Project | Sign-Hub: Preserving, researching and fostering the linguistic, historical and cultural heritage of European Deaf signing communities with an integral resource

SIGN-HUB is a 4-year research project (2016-2020) funded by the European Commission within Horizon 2020 Reflective Society 2015, Research and Innovation actions.

It has been designed by a European research team to provide an innovative and inclusive resource hub for the linguistic, historical and cultural documentation of the Deaf communities’ heritage and for sign language assessment in clinical intervention and school settings.

Project | Catalan Sign Language Corpus

This project, started in 2012 by the Institut d'Estudis Catalans, aims at creating the first comprehensive corpus of Catalan Sign Language. This corpus will document the current state of LSC by registering data from signers of different ages and gender from different territories of Catalonia. The final goal is to create a tool for linguists, LSC educators, and any other LSC user. Moreover, based on this corpus a lexical data base is being built, which will be the first comprehensive lexical data base of LSC.
