Hello all!
I've followed an ELAN formation some times ago (at Univ. 
Paris8) and I've a question: is our interest to use complete SW 
transcriptions or just use SW to annotate some particular phenomenas?

If the answer is that we just want to use SW to annotate eye gaze, 
configurations, head movements... we can create a font containing the 
SW glyphes we want (one for eyegaze, one for configurations...) and use 
our personal font in ELAN's tiers (this is easy to do in ELAN, if I 
well remember)
But if our interest is to use a complete sign 
transcribed with SW... the problem is different! I think it's 
impossible to create a font where every "lettre" is a complete SW's 
sign, because of the high variability of signs (if we want to use signs 
like gloses, why don't we use directly gloses??? horrible idea! O_o ). 
So we'll need something that connect our SW's transcription to ELAN. 
Why not thinking of creating a video that is a chain of SW's signs, 
synchronized with the video you have transcribed: is possibile to use 2 
video at the same time in ELAN. So we'll have the original video and 
the transcription in SW. Then we can also use SW to annotate specifics 
phenomenas, but we will not reduce SW to a linear succession of symbols 
(like Stokoe notation or HamNoSys).
This is only an intuition. I've 
never used ELAN for annotation. I use to annotate by hand or with a 
software that Fabrizio Borgia has created for me.

>>     We are pleased to announce a 
workshop titled _Building sign language corpora in North America_ .

>>      
>>
>>     Purpose of workshop: There are many definitions of a 
language corpus. One such definition offered by McEnery, Xiao and Tono 
(2006) is a collection of texts in a given language that is 
representative, comprehensive, accessible, machine-readable and 
searchable. There are several ongoing language corpora projects focused 
on the documentation of sign languages in countries like Australia , 
The Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany . To date, there have 
been several workshops in Europe on various aspects of building a sign 
language corpus (e.g., the SLCN series of workshops co- organized by 
Onno Crasborn and colleagues). This workshop will provide a much needed 
opportunity for researchers based in the US and Canada to share 
experiences from their work in this area, as well as share ideas for 
future projects.
>>      
>>
>>     Program information: The workshop 
will begin on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at 8:30 am and take place at 
Gallaudet University , in the Student Academic Center (SAC), Room 1011.
