BSL Corpus project (DCAL)

The BSL Corpus Project was funded in 2008 by the Economic and Social Research Council and based at the Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre at University College London.  The project involved filming and collecting video clips of deaf people using BSL around the UK to improve the understanding of BSL use and structure, as well as be used in deaf education, sign language interpreting training and for BSL teachers.  Although the project ended in 2011, there is still much more ongoing work to do in researching, collecting and annotating video evidence. 

The BSL Corpus is freely accessible to the public online. To search signs by region for signs, go to this page.
