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
UNM's @_CooLDP situates us within Intersectionality Frameworks such as #BlackFeministDisbility (Bailey& Mobley 2018) #BlackDeafFeminist (Chapple 2019) & outlines different branches of #CriticalRaceTheory showing each highlights different facets of intersectionality #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
Once Ryan sets his @ryanlepic points out ASL's "structuralism problem" which is that we have been spinning our wheels by trying maintain theoretical assumptions such as one form = one meaning in morphological relationships. #HDLS14

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…
For 2020, who has time to read lol, but the paper to beat is really a one, two punch from @Benambridge in his "Against stored abstractions: A radical exemplar model of language acquisition" in First Language 40 (5-6) which really challenged my thinking in many ways. #Exemplars
