Marie Curie Actions funded fellowship Deictic Communication - A Multidisciplinary Training-DCOMM

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The ESR will focus on deictic communication in sign languages. In particular, the project will explore typological, modality-specific features affecting deixis and anaphora in SL. Deictic-anaphoric reference is produced in SL via complex manual and non-manual units, which exhibit highly iconic features and are marked by specific eye-gaze patterns which distinguish them from standard signs. Signed data will be analysed also referring to co-speech deictic gestures and to other deictic devices (e.g. demonstratives), in order to analyze bimodal bilingual (spoken/signed language) patterns of both adults and children. Data on signed conversations and discourses, as well as narrative texts elicited through video and pictured stories will be collected, transcript and analyzed.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
