The team would like to welcome three new Deaf community fieldworkers to the BSL Corpus project: Belfast fieldworker Evelyn McFarland, Newcastle fieldworker Dawn Marshall and Greater London fieldworker Melinda Napier. Melinda Napier has replaced Hamish Cooke. The BSL Corpus team would like to thank Hamish for all his hard work.
Kyra Pollitt has accepted the role of BSL Corpus Project translator/researcher. She and her colleagues at The Pollitt Bureau will be responsible for a written English translation of some of the BSL Corpus Project sign language data.
We would like to welcome Evelyn, Dawn, Melinda and Kyra to the team and we are looking forward to working with them!
