Third internal SignON seminar

On the 28th of March we organised our third internal seminar, this time presented by Prof. dr. Myriam Vermeerbergen (KU Leuven) and Prof Lorraine Leeson (Trinity College Dublin), who are members of our consortium. It all started with a tasty introduction: "Sign languages are lasagna and spoken languages are spaghetti". Like lasagna, sign language simultaneously contains several layers that together form a meaning. After all, in contrast to spoken language, which is sequential (without co-speech gestures), in sign language information can be conveyed simultaneously via several modalities: hands, mouth image, facial expression, body movement. It was an interesting lecture on various different characteristics of sign languages.
