UCL video on BSL

UCL has launced its own YouTube channel and this video is a UCL mini-lecture called “The truth about sign language”:
“People outside the deaf community may not know that the regional variations found in spoken language also exist in sign language. This variation is the subject of the current BSL Corpus Project, led by the team at UCL’s Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre (DCAL). Dr Adam Schembri, Senior Research Fellow and Project Director, explains what this research is telling us about the history of a language that, like every other, is continually changing.”
