Theoretical Issues in Sign Language Research (TISLR) 14 was held this week in Osaka, Japan, in a hybrid format. Nozomi Tomita presented her poster "A pointing sign like fillers: One JSL user's discourse journey over time," Hao Lin was a coauthor on a talk with Valentina Aristodemo and Mirko Santoro on "Comparative constructions in sign language: A comparative study between LIS and CSL," and Kate Davidson presented a poster with Annemarie Kocab and (lab alum!) Dorothy Ahn on "Embracing optionality: pragmatic constraints on loci." It has been exciting to see so much inspiring sign linguistics research around the world at the first TISLR in Asia!
