The Sign Language Dataset Compendium

Lexical Resource


The POLYTROPON Lexicon is a collection of existing lexical resources of Greek Sign Language which were enriched with new lemmas. Main resource for the lemma list were the NOEMA dictionary and the Greek Sign Language dataset of the Dicta-Sign Corpus. The POLYTROPON Lexicon was constructed at the Athena Research Center at the Institute for Language and Speech Processing (ILSP) under the lead of Eleni Efthimiou.

A by-product of the lexical resource is the POLYTROPON Parallel Corpus, which contains Greek Sign Language examples of use for every sign entry within the POLYTROPON Lexicon.
