So ready for this amazing #HDLS14 panel on "Race, racism and racialization in sign language research" organized by @linasigns and @jaceyhill starring @_CooLDP @munimuninianna and Dominic Harrison (are you on Twitter Dominic?) .@linasigns starts of with a powerful reminder and acknowledgment about the constant presence of violence and oppression against BIPOC people in this country and how BIPOC scholars are forced to exist in spaces which thrive on white supremacy and settler colonialism #HDLS14

Yay! We're finally in! @ryanlepic's #HDLS14 Keynote starts with a glowing recommendation/introduction from @ErinWilkinson about the importance of Ryan's work on #SLMorphology and #UsageBasedApproaches and I couldn't agree more! I love how Ryan's keynote starts with a nod to the oddity of doing work during Covid times and the routine, simple things we are missing by not traveling for #HDLS14 especially coffee from the UNM SUB Satellite Coffee and having Frontier burritos for lunch w/ friends

My dudes, these #HDLS14 talks/posters are so good (per uzhe, yoozh? yuzh?) I'm doing a terrible job of retweeting/threading talks/posters without the structure of synchronous talks, but I've watched SEVERAL. So here is an attempt to put them in a thread.

Fav 2019 paper @ryanlepic's @glossa_oa "A usage-based alternative to “lexicalization” in SL linguistics." A must read article that really unpacks #UsageBasedApproaches and helps us move beyond lexicalization. Lepic, R. (2019) Glossa 4(1), 23. DOI: doi.org/10.5334/gjgl.8… A close runner up for me is Davidson et al. "The relationship btwn verbal form & event structure in sign languages," which I appreciate for it's methodical & systematic investigation of event structure in SLs (in the same @glossa_oa issue 4(1), 123) DOI: doi.org/10.5334/gjgl.9…
