Computer-aided technology has allowed considerable corpus research in linguistics that would not have been available just a few decades ago. However, many of these corpora are geared towards written language. Corpora for spoken and singed languages require considerably more effort to construct. Therefore, it’s always exciting to find just such a resource.
The link below will take you to the webpage for a group that is working on a major corpora project. Based at Radboud University Nijmegen and led by Dr. Onno Crasborn, thi site aims to compile data and research on sign languages from across the world: Faculty of Arts – SLCN – Sign Linguistics Corpora Network.
