My Three Animals – ASL Nursery Rhyme

By ASL, Kids, Literature, Virtual ASL Storytelling

“My Three Animals” is an original ASL nursery rhyme produced through motion capture. This project investigates the natural temporal patterning in ASL using mocap data and animation. Our goal is to create signing avatars without compromising the prosody and fluency in ASL storytelling.

English translation: So! I live with three animals! One dog, one cat, and one bird! Everyday, my dog barks at me; Everyday, my cat stares at me; Everyday, my bird sings to me. Why? Oh! It’s because they want food! They beg and I feed them! On a Saturday, oh no! My dog barks, my cat stares, my bird sings, and they all three beg! I feed, feed, and feed! But, I love my three animals! So! I live with three animals! One dog, one cat, and one bird!

Made possible by Motion Light Lab and Mocaplab, and funded by the National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center on Visual Language and Visual Learning at Gallaudet University.
