ASL-LEX (AT Fellows Project)


ASL-LEX is a database of lexical and phonological properties of nearly 1,000 signs in American Sign Language. This project is a collaboration between the Laboratory for Language and Cognitive Neuroscience at San Diego State University and the Psycholinguistics and Linguistics Lab at Tufts University. ASL-LEX is a searchable database of subjective frequency ratings, iconicity ratings, lexical properties (e.g., initialized signs; lexical class), and six phonological features from which neighborhood densities have been calculated. ASL-LEX also provides, reference video clips, English translations and, for a subset of signs, alternative translations.
