Daiwa Anglo- Japanese Foundation

27 May, 2011

I am happy to announce that I have been awarded a grant from the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese foundation. The grant is to support my comparative study into Japanese and British Sign Language, with a particular focus on numerical systems.

As a result of this I intend to undertake a research trip to Japan sometime between October and December 2011; the aim of this trip is not only to collect data but to continue to promote and encourage Anglo-Japanese relations.

    You should definitely contact Rose Stamp and the BSL Corpus Project at University College London if you have not done so already. The BSL Corpus project has documented the extensive variation and change in BSL number sign systems, and this information would be very useful for any comparative studies with Japanese Sign Language (NS).

    Best wishes,
