As of July 1 (2016) I’m a PhD student in the SIGN-HUB project, which focuses on “Preserving, Researching and Fostering the Linguistic, Historical and Cultural Heritage of European Deaf Signing Communities with an Integral Resource”. The project is funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 program. One of the aims is to provide descriptive grammars of six European sign languages and I will be working on the one for Dutch Sign Language (NGT). This is an exciting and challenging project since hardly any (extensive) descriptive grammars on sign languages exist so far. Therefore, a manual has been written by the COST SignGram Action IS1006 team, which will function as my guideline. The grammars will be published on an online platform, with interactive links and video examples. The first part of my project is dedicated to gathering and looking into studies that have already been done on NGT, later I will also conduct my own research on grammatical features that have not been investigated (extensively) yet. Supervisors: Prof. dr. E.M. van den Bogaerde & dr. Roland Pfau.
