Gal Belzitsman


Research Assistant. I studied linguistics at Tel aviv University, where I was also working as a research assistant at the lab of Prof. Ruth Berman for 3 years. My interest in Sign Language started while I was training to be a professional dancer – I am intrigued by the symbiosis of language and movement. I started working as a research assistant in the Sign Language Research Lab in 2011. I work on several research projects: the notion of accent in Sign Language, the semantic and phonological mapping of two handed signs, and my PhD research project will focus on the language of the body, incorporating the fields of Sign Language and Theatre.
