My latest research revolved around the question ‘when is a sign production still acceptable’, or rather, given that context and application of different norms have a big influence on acceptability, ‘which (types of) variations are more acceptable?’
We ran an experiment which I think has yielded interesting results. Tuesday Jan 22 I will be giving a presentation at the MPI Nijmegen about the experiment and the results as part of the Nijmegen Gesture Centre Lecture Series 2007. This will be in English. At our own workshop ‘Een mooi gebaar 2007‘ I also gave preliminary results in a short 10 minute presentation in Dutch.
