Description:ASL-LEX is a database of phonological and lexical properties of ASL signs. When first released it consisted of 1000 signs, growing in size to 2723 signs in the 2020 release. ASL-LEX is built in a collaboration of Laboratory for Language and Cognitive Neuroscience at San Diego State University, the Programs in Deaf Studies at Boston University and the Psycholinguistics and Linguistics Lab at Tufts University. The creators are Naomi Caselli, Karen Emmorey, Zed Sevcikova Sehyr, Ariel Cohen-Goldberg, Cindy O'Grady Farnady. The resource is available as a searchable web interface and as a raw data in spreadsheet form. The project provides web visualisations, instructions of usage and a download option. The frequency ratings provided are done by 25 deaf signers per sign. ASL-LEX – together with ASL Signbank and SignStudy – is used in the construction of ASLNet (Lualdi et al., 2021), a wordnet for American Sign Language. ASL-LEX is part of the SIGN-LEX interactive web-based platform (see Caselli et al. (2022)), also hosting ISL-LEX.
