  • The importance of 3D motion trajectories for computer-based sign recognition 

    Dilsizian, Mark; Tang, Zhiqiang; Metaxas, Dimitris; Huenerfauth, Matt; Neidle, Carol (European Language Resources Association (ELRA), 2016)
    Computer-based sign language recognition from video is a challenging problem because of the spatiotemporal complexities inherent in sign production and the variations within and across signers. However, linguistic information ...
  • Syntax 

    Neidle, Carol (SAGE Publications, 2016)
  • Definiteness and determinacy 

    Coppock, Elizabeth; Beaver, David (SPRINGER, 2015-10-01)
    This paper distinguishes between definiteness and determinacy. Definiteness is seen as a morphological category which, in English, marks a (weak) uniqueness presupposition, while determinacy consists in denoting an individual. ...
  • Ecology in current dvents: proposal to develop reading skills in the Spanish as a foreign Language classroom 

    Carrion-Guerrero, Elena (Servicio de Publicaciones de la Universidad de Zaragoza, 2017-12-01)
    Daily life in our first language (L1) is plagued by current events. News surrounds us and is on all our devices. These current events constantly remind us of the condition of the environment, what we can do to reserve it, ...
  • Detection of major ASL sign types in continuous signing for ASL recognition 

    Yanovich, Polina; Neidle, Carol; Metaxas, Dimitris (European Language Resources Association (ELRA), 2016)
    In American Sign Language (ASL) as well as other signed languages, different classes of signs (e.g., lexical signs, fingerspelled signs, and classifier constructions) have different internal structural properties. Continuous ...
  • Centroid-based exemplar selection of ASL non-manual expressions using multidimensional dynamic time warping and MPEG4 features 

    Kacorri, Hernisa; Syed, Ali Raza; Huenerfauth, Matt; Neidle, Carol (European Language Resources Association (ELRA), 2016)
    We investigate a method for selecting recordings of human face and head movements from a sign language corpus to serve as a basis for generating animations of novel sentences of American Sign Language (ASL). Drawing from ...
  • Context effects on second-language learning of tonal contrasts. 

    Chang, Charles B.; Bowles, Anita R. (2015-12)
    Studies of lexical tone  learning generally focus on monosyllabic contexts, while reports of phonetic learning benefits associated with input variability are based largely on experienced learners. This study trained ...
  • Age effects in first language attrition: speech perception by Korean-English bilinguals 

    Ahn, Sunyoung; Chang, Charles B.; DeKeyser, Robert; Lee-Ellis, Sunyoung (WILEY, 2017-09-01)
    This study investigated how bilinguals’ perception of their first language (L1) differs according to age of reduced contact with L1 after immersion in a second language (L2). Twenty-one L1 Korean-L2 English bilinguals in ...
  • Pitch ability as an aptitude for tone learning 

    Bowles, Anita R.; Chang, Charles B.; Karuzis, Valerie P. (2016-12)
    Tone languages such as Mandarin use voice pitch to signal lexical contrasts, presenting a challenge for second/foreign language (L2) learners whose native languages do not use pitch in this manner. The present study examined ...
  • On the cognitive basis of contact-induced sound change: vowel merger reversal in Shanghainese 

    Yao, Yao; Chang, Charles B. (2016-06)
    This study investigates the source and status of a recent sound change in Shanghainese (Wu, Sinitic) that has been attributed to language contact with Mandarin. The change involves two vowels, /e/ and /ɛ/, reported to be ...
