AAC Workplace Corpus Project

The AAC Workplace Corpus project focuses on the needs of workers using augmentative and alternative communication devices in the workplace and is a collaborative project between the Applied Linguistics Laboratory and the Center for Assistive Technology & Environmental Access (CATEA) at Georgia Institute of Technology.  Early stages of this multi-phased project have been funded by a grant from Georgia State University.  Primary researchers for this project are Lucy Pickering, Eric Friginal and Carrie Bruce.  Initial publications include:


Friginal, E., Pearson, P., Di Ferrante, L., Pickering, L. & Bruce, C. (2013). Linguistic characteristics of AAC discourse in the workplace. Discourse Studies 15 (3) 279-298.
