Central Taurus Sign Language

This study was conducted in collaboration with Prof. Diane Brentari from University of Chicago in order to investigate emerging morphology and phonology in Central Taurus Sign Language.
This collection involves CTSL words in isolation and in context.
Spontaneous conversations collected from CTSL cohorts 1-3 in August 2014 and August 2015. The pdf or eaf files should be opened with the corresponding video file/files. These files involve CTSL translations into Turkish. Please consult a Turkish speaker for translations into English.
This study was designed to study distinctive features for intransitive, transitive, reciprocal and symmetrical actions.
This data set involves CTSL responses to intransitive, transitive and ditransitive events. The pdf file in this set lists the stimuli items. In each data file, the signers describe events in response to these stimuli items in single or multiple attempts.
