Data for: Visible Energy as a Measure of Prominence in Sign Language

Published: 5 Nov 2019 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/wjbccxyd6h.1

Description of this data

These data are a subset of the ASL-Lex dataset (Emmorey et al. 2016), but with the addition of three pieces of data for each included sign. There are 797 signs from the ASL-Lex database, along with their compound, major movement, major location, and iconicity statuses, all of which come from the ASL-Lex database. In addition, each sign also includes the average and RMS motion as measured by FlowAnalyzer software (Barbosa 2013), along with the number of frames that the motion calculations are based on.
