The IPROSLA corpus is an archive bringing together two existing datasets of Sign Language of the Netherlands on SLsign language acquisition with the goal of providing documentation, metadata and long-term storage. One dataset consists of longitudinal data of deaf children from deaf and hearing parents collected at the University of Amsterdam over 20 years. The other dataset contains newly collected longitudinal data from hearing and deaf children of deaf parents collected by Radboud University. In total 16 children have been recorded for approximately 225 hours.
The recordings were done in informal settings like the home of the children. The children were interacting freely and playing with their parents and/or a deaf research assistant visiting the families.
For the recordings one to two cameras were used, originally with PAL mini-DV tapes or PAL VHS cassettes which were digitised later on.
