Dissertation Defense by Danica Dicus 5/21/2018 @10a @SLCC3233 “Towards corpus-based sign language interpreting studies: A critical look at the relationship between linguistic data and software tools”

Original source: https://my.gallaudet.edu/intranet/calendar/dissertation-defense-for-danica-l-dicus

Dissertation defense for Danica L. Dicus
Date: May 21, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM
Location: SLCC 3233
From: Gaurav Mathur, Ph.D., Dean of the Graduate School

It is my pleasure to announce that Danica L. Dicus, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Linguistics, will defend her dissertation, “Towards corpus-based sign language interpreting studies: A critical look at the relationship between linguistic data and software tools” on Monday, May 21, at 10 a.m. in Sorenson Language and Communication Center, Room 3233. The first forty minutes of the dissertation defense are open to the Gallaudet community.

Ms. Dicus’ study makes exciting advancements towards the development of a sign language interpreting corpus by examining the relationship between linguistic data and the specialized software tools that are used to view and analyze the data. Evaluation of the software tools ELAN, Transana, and EXMARaLDA against a single source of data revealed that the fidelity of software tools may limit researchers’ ability to approach increasingly complex linguistic analysis of signed and spoken interpreted data. The application of corpus linguistics has the potential to propel the interpreting field forward in terms of the depth and acuity with which practitioners are able to discuss and analyze their work. In order to accomplish this, the right tools need to be made available to researchers.

The members of Ms. Dicus’ dissertation committee are Dr. Ceil Lucas, Department of Linguistics (emerita), co-chair of the dissertation committee; Dr. Miako Villanueva Department of Linguistics, co-chair of the dissertation committee; Dr. Risa Shaw, Department of Linguistics; Dr. Steven Collins, Department of Interpretation and Translation; Dr. Onno Crasborn, Department of Linguistics, Radboud University Nijmegen; and Dr. Claudio Bendazzoli, Department of English Language and Translation, University of Torino.

Ms. Dicus came to Gallaudet University with bachelor’s degrees in linguistics and in interpreting from California State University, Northridge. After receiving her master’s degree in linguistics from Gallaudet University in 2011, she began the Ph.D. Program in Linguistics. During her time as a doctoral student, Ms. Dicus served as a research assistant to Dr. Theodore Supalla of Georgetown University as well as a part-time instructor in the Gallaudet University Department of Linguistics. She has given presentations at several national and international conferences and she has published several papers, including a paper she co-authored with Dr. Brenda Nicodemus that was later published in an international journal.

Please join me in extending best wishes to Danica Dicus for her dissertation defense.

“The Dept of Linguistics: How We Got Here” – Brown Bag by Professor Emeritus Robert E Johnson 11/3, 12:30-1:30 @SLCC3233

what: Open House/Brown Bag Lunch Presentation by Bob Johnson
topic:  “The Department of Linguistics: How we got here.”
presenterRobert E. Johnson, PhD
when:Friday, November 3, 12:30 pm
where: , LIN Open Area (SLCC 3233)
Summary of presentation: Which people and principles drove the creation and growth of the department.

Bio: Robert E. (Bob) Johnson, PhD, is Professor Emeritus at Gallaudet, Washington, D.C., where, until he retired in 2012, he was Professor of Linguistics and Assistant Dean of the Graduate School and Extended Learning. He holds a B.A. degree in psychology from Stanford University and a Ph.D. in anthropology from Washington State University. He is an anthropological linguist, interested in the phonological and morphological structure of signed languages, their function in deaf communities, and their critical role in deaf education. He has examined the structures of a number of sign languages, including American Sign Language and the sign language of a Yucatec Maya community. He is co-author of the widely read monograph, “Unlocking the Curriculum: Principles for Achieving Access in Deaf Education,” and numerous papers on signed language structure and function.  Much of his recent work has focused on the imperative of bilingualism in the education of deaf children and on the ways in which the educational and medical communities resist it.
