I received notice of my acceptance to present at the International Symposium on Bilingualism 8 in Oslo, Norway this June. My presentation, entitled "Cross-language activation in ASL-English bilingual children" will be part of a colloquium on Multimodal Bilingualism in Children Learning a Sign Language and a spoken/written language. A colloquium on Adult Multimodal Bilingualism has also been accepted. It's looking like an exciting conference!

Still awaiting the status of my Ethics application. I called today, thank goodness I did, because one of the 3 reviewers just had not yet submitted his review. Phew! I'm not crazy, I WAS supposed to have heard already.
As soon as I hear, if it's positive, I'll send Ethics applications out to school divisions!
I've put together an online semantic judgment survey to collect some native English speaker information about the relatedness between pairs of words.
Answers are coming in.
I've divided it into 3 parts and have 30 responses for part 1...fewer and fewer as I look at parts 2 and 3. I hope to finish with an equal number of responses to each section of the survey! Please email me if you would like to participate!
Tentatively making preparations for the phonological judgement survey with native ASL signers through a friend/my tutor...just awaiting Ethics approval!
