This subcorpus is part of the Corpus of Finnish Sign Language collected in the CFINSL project. The subcorpus comprises conversations from 18 Finnish Sign Language signers who belong to different age groups and live in different parts of Finland. The material covers four fixed tasks performed by the signers: introductions, discussing work/hobbies, discussing a topic related to the deaf world, and free discussion (e.g. on travel, sports).

The material consists of video files and the annotations of the videos in ELAN format as well as the metadata about the signers and the content and format of the videos. All of the video data (six camera angles) has been annotated for signs and translations.

Please note that the corpus contains personal data and you need to follow the appropriate guidelines in processing the material (see links under Documentation). You also need to apply for access via "Language Bank Rights". One application will give you access to all versions of the subcorpus of conversations.

The corpus is available in the LAT service provided by Kielipankki, The Language Bank of Finland.
