New project on Sign Multilingualism

2 March, 2011

March 1, the iSLanDS centre started a new project on Sign Multilingualism, including data from three types of rare sign multilingual situations.

  • ‘Cross-signing’ – the development of improvised communication between users of different sign languages in language contact situations
  • ‘Sign-speaking’ – the simultaneous production of sign and speech, where the different structures of both languages are kept largely intact
  • ‘Sign-switching’ – code-switching between sign languages in multilingual sign language users

More information on this new project can be found at the iSLanDS website.
