In this paper, we present a system for automatic sign language recognition of
segmented words in American Sign Language (ASL). The system uses
appearance-based features extracted directly from the frames captured by
standard cameras without any special data acquisition tools. This means that we
do not rely on complex preprocessing of the video signal or on an intermediate
segmentation step that may produce errors. We introduce a database for ASL
word recognition ...

The American Sign Language Linguistic Research Project (ASLLRP) has

the structure of American Sign Language. We initially came together fortuitously,
as fascination about the syntactic structure of ASL spread from one to another of
us. We began by surveying the existing literature, and we quickly became
