Description:The Auslan Corpus collects 100 Auslan signers from Australia. The project is led by Trevor Johnston; the recordings were made between 2004 and 2007, annotation work is still ongoing. Each session took three hours and contained an interview, retelling stories, recalling personal events, responding to a questionnaire, engaging in spontaneous conversation, and responding in Auslan to various stimuli. The participants were recorded in pairs, sitting in front of a blue background. Data collection was co-ordinated and organised with the local deaf community. A deaf native signers and long-term resident of the city of collection led through the recording sessions. Two digital video cameras were used for recording. The data has been split up into 1700 video clips ranging between 2 and 20 minutes.
