what is a classifier in asl?

Classifiers are signs that are used to represent general categories or "classes" of things. They can be used to describe the size and shape of an object (or person). They can be used to represent the object itself, or the way the object moves or relates to other objects (or people).

semantic classifier. Semantic classifiers are proforms that function as "pronoun" that replaces a noun (or as noun and verb combined). Some examples of semantic classifiers are: cl-1 (e.g. a person), cl-2 (e.g. two persons), cl-2-upsidedown (a standing person), cl-2bent (e.g. an animal), etc. 2. descriptive classifier.

American Sign Language (ASL) classifiers show where someone or something is moving, where it is, and its appearance (e.g., size and shape). In sign language, an ASL classifier serves the same purpose as a pronoun in English. First, the word must be used, then the ASL classifier can be used to represent the word.

There are many ASL classifiers, involving handshapes that represent numbers and letters. Classifiers are referred to as "CL" followed by the classifier, such as, "CL:F." One set of classifiers is the use of the numbers one to five. Another set of classifiers uses the letters and letter combinations A, B, C, F, G, ILY(Y), L, O, S, U, and V. As an example, the "1" ASL classifier can represent people walking. In another example, the "A" classifier can represent a house.

ASL classifiers are an important part of learning sign language, especially for people learning to become interpreters for the deaf and hard of hearing. Students learning sign language often post their ASL classifier assignments on YouTube.

The Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education has published several articles related to ASL classifiers. In one example, in the article "The Acquisition of Spatial Constructions in American Sign Language and English," researchers examined the learning of spatial relationships such as the concept of "front." The study involved both children and adults, both English users and ASL users, and subjects were tested with pictures and sign language (for ASL users).

Study results showed that children learn concepts like above and below quick because there is no perspective shift involved (i.e., there is no need to picture mentally the actual location). However, concepts like "front" and "behind" take longer to learn because they do involve perspective shifts. This was found to be true for both ASL and English users but it took longer for ASL users. According to the study's authors, this may be because of how difficult it is for young children to acquire mental perspectives (called rotations). In addition, young deaf children in the study understood relations with people classifiers better than with animal or vehicle classifiers.

we will use PyTorch to build and train a deep learning model to classify images to 29 classes (26 ASL alphabet, space, Del, and nothing) which can be used later to help Deaf peope communicate with other and maybe with computers as well. We will use a pre-trained mobile network and we will define our classifier and connect it to network, then train this classifier along with some of the last blocks of the network on our dataset.

1- Obtain dataset from Kaggle. 2- explore data and define transformers to preprocess images before training. 3- define our classifier to have an output layer of 29 outputs. 4- train the last blocks of the network along with the classifier we defined. 5- test the model we trained.

This notebook uses python 3.6 + GPU environment which allow us to do the whole process and train complex model in the same place which is a notebook in Watson studio. Learn more about available environments Watson Studio environments.

Cells are how notebooks are structured and are the areas where you write your code. To run a piece of code, click on the cell to select it, then press SHIFT+ENTER or press the play button in the toolbar above. Additionally, the Cell dropdown menu has several options to run cells, including running one cell at a time or to run all cells at once.
