The Sign Language Dataset Compendium


Danish Sign Language Corpus

The Danish Sign Language Corpus is a collection of video material from 31 signers of Danish Sign Language from Denmark. The Corpus is used to build a DTS-Danish Dictionary. The Danish Sign Language Dictionary project building the corpus is based at the Bachelor's Degree Programme in Danish Sign Language and Speech-to-text Interpreter at the University College Copenhagen and led by Mads Jonathan Pedersen and Thomas Troelsgård. The project started 2014 and is still ongoing.

For the lexicographic work the Danish wordnet DanNet (Pedersen et al., 2009) was implemented into the corpus.

The recordings took place in a classroom, in a rather informal setting. One camera was used filming the participants from a front view. The signers were recorded alone, having a deaf staff member as receiver, who also gave instructions on the tasks.
