The DGS Corpus project is now known in South Korea!
On 04.07.2020 the former project collaborator Dr. Sung-Eun Hong gave a talk about the DGS Corpus project at Kangnam University in South Korea. The talk took place in the context of a conference on the current and future research situation of regional variants in sign languages.
About 70-80 participants were present at the conference. Due to the current corona situation, the participants wore masks and sat next to each other at a great distance from their neighbours. Only the lecturers and the interpreters did not have to wear masks.
The talk was followed with great interest. There were some questions, for example about the size of the DGS Corpus, mouthigs and the finger alphabet. There were also questions about the creation of the dictionary based on the DGS Corpus data. We thank Dr. Sung-Eun Hong for presenting the DGS Corpus project on this stage.
