Russian Sign Language Corpus
The Russian Sign Language Corpus is a collection of signers of Russian Sign Language. Represented are two different local variations of RSL, one from the Siberian and one from the Moscow region.
The corpus was created between 2012 and 2014 at the Novosibirsk State Technical University under the lead of Svetlana Burkova. It comprises spontaneous speech in the form of monologues and dialogues and elicited data. For elicitation cartoons, picture stories, and a linguistic questionnaire were used.
Recordings were done in a studio, in classrooms and at signers homes. A deaf addressee was present.
