Transcription of American Sign Language narratives
I am studying the use of a classifiers (a linguistic category) in American Sign Language narratives. To present a phonological transcription of the texts, I will transcribe these narratives using SignWriting, a system for writing visual movement and signed languages, currently used to teach Deaf children literacy in signed languages. As the texts are currently on video, and transcription is a lengthy and detailed process, I would like to use CARTAH to help me digitize them for ease and efficiency. I do not need to edit the videos, just transfer them to CDs.
