Malaysian sign language research project team

16-20 Jun2008

The Malaysian sign language research project team of the faculty of languages and linguistics at the University of Malaya attended a five-day training workshop on sign language documentation organised by the centre. During the workshop, the Malaysian sign language researchers and our staff had fruitful exchanges on how linguistic signals can be distinguished from non-linguistic ones and the techniques involved in the construction of sign language corpora. Moreover, a discussion was held on possible future research collaborations between the University of Malaya and the centre.
