Discussion with Mark Rust

Discussion with Mark Rust

Mark Rust has spent three months in Hungary as a guest professor at McDaniel College in Budapest. During his stay, he honoured us with a visit on 22.05.2018.   The professor is a child of Deaf parents, and he is dealing with American Sign Language (one of his mother tongues). The three hours long visit was spent with the exchange of ideas in a good atmosphere. We presented our projects and aimed to find common ground between our research areas and the professor’s, mainly focussing on the areas of corpus building, language assessment and the development of terminology. We hope these were the first steps of an active and fruitful future cooperation.
