Muneera Abu Roken



I have been studying different languages all my life, but I only discovered my interest in linguistics after taking a seminar course in Pidgins and Creoles as part of my BA studies in the English department at the University of Haifa. I started working in the Sign Language Research Lab in 2014 as a research assistant. My work includes coding of data from different sign languages in Israel as well as Hebrew-Arabic-English translation.  After falling in love with Deaf culture through learning American Sign Language, I want to learn as much as I can about Israeli Sign Language and the people who use and expand it.
