The Kata Kolok Corpus
The Kata Kolok Corpus includes transcribed and translated video recordings of local folklore and spontaneous conversations in addition to elicited language data on the basis of various well-known stimulus materials (e.g. Canary row, Man & Tree).

The Kata Kolok Child Signing Corpus
The Kata Kolok Child Signing Corpus was developed in two stages. The initial data set concerns two focal deaf children from the fifth generation of Kata Kolok signers, as well as a child homesigner who starts to acquire Kata Kolok at five years of age. Most of the recordings were made by I Ketut Kanta, a hearing signer who later on became a teacher in the village’s inclusive education program.
The second data set, led by Hannah Lutzenberger, concerns two focal deaf children in addition to six hearing children acquiring Kata Kolok from birth. Together they represent the sixth generation of native Kata Kolok Signers. Recordings have been made by two local deaf research assistants Ni Made Dadiastini and Ni Made Sumarni.
The metadata of the Kata Kolok Child Signing Corpus are accessible through the Language Archive at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. Requests to access the dataset run through Hannah Lutzenberger (email@example.com). Download
We thank all the deaf families involved for allowing us to record everyday interaction in their homes.

Kata Kolok Signbank
Kata Kolok Signbank is a lexical database of Kata Kolok developed at the Sign Language Linguistics Group led by Prof Onno Crasborn at Radboud University and coordinated by Hannah Lutzenberger. Signbank is used for the ongoing lemmatization of the Kata Kolok Corpus. To view the dataset, create an account at Global Signbank. Sections of the Kata Kolok Signbank are expected to be made available to the wider public towards the end of 2021.
